ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the policy of North Korea. It states that one false assumption around North Korea is the claim that this country and its leadership are not predictable. It notes that in the sunshine policy between North Korea and Seoul, the stronger side showed maturity, broke the stalemate unilaterally and used the opportunity that had opened through the economic collapse of North Korea's trade partners, a leadership change and the 1995-1997 famine. It assesses the foreign policy of North Korea. It notes that since 2002, Seoul, South Korea demonstrated its continued interest in North Korea despite the conflict over the nuclear issue, emphasized the commonalities despite the many differences, and thereby successfully undermined anti-South Korean propaganda.
