In 2018 there was renewed diplomatic engagement between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea) and the United States over the latter’s long-standing demand—supported by multiple United Nations Security Council resolutions—that North Korea verifiably abandon its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programmes (see section I). In June, the first-ever summit meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader was held in Singapore, after which North Korea committed to work towards the ‘complete denuclearization’ of the Korean peninsula. As part of the easing of political and military tensions during the year, North Korea announced that it had suspended the testing of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles and had destroyed its nuclear weapon test site.
