In 2018 tensions between the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea) over the latter’s long-running programmes to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missile delivery systems began to subside as a result of renewed diplomatic engagement between the two countries. This took place against the background of an emergent peace process between North Korea and the Republic of Korea (ROK, or South Korea).1 The USA has taken a leading international role in condemning North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes and demanding that it immediately and verifiably halt all activities related to them. It has also been at the forefront of international efforts in the United Nations Security Council to compel North Korea to abandon the programmes through the imposition of increasingly stringent sanctions and other punitive measures since 2006.2
