IRMO Brief no. 10/2017 deals with situation in Korean peninsula. For decades, North Korea has been developing its nuclear program and increasing the power and range of its missiles. Armed with nuclear weapons and in possession of an arsenal of missiles, it is now in a position to hit and destroy densely populated targets throughout East Asia.
