The article focuses on the relationship between South Korea and North Korea in the wake of North Korea's nuclear ambitions. Most of the people in South Korea believe that North Korea wants to be equal to the U.S. in the international community and don't have any intention of invading South Korea. The most serious rift between Seoul and Washington arose late last year over contingency planning on what the U.S. and South Korea should do if North Korea starts to fall apart.
