ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the heated relations between North Korea and the United States. Four days after North Korea signed a denuclearization agreement with the U.S. and other nations aimed at normalizing relations between the two countries, the U.S. branded North Korea a criminal state and imposed sweeping financial sanctions. The author asserts that North Korea's missile tests and planned nuclear test were directly provoked by the U.S. sanctions. North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Gye Gwan comments, concluding that the U.S. administration of President George W. Bush is dysfunctional because of a rift between those who wish to negotiate with North Korea, and those who wish to sanction the country.
