A VESTIGE of the Cold War, the North Korean crisis needs to be resolved using Asian precedents in mind. The other framework for resolution—the Libyan model—has been made untenable by the march of history. In July 2007, North Korea halted operations of its main nuclear reactor in Yongbyon, as verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency. It was the result of the February 2007 negotiations of the Six-Party Talks involving Russia, China, Japan, the United States, and the two Koreas. Yongbyon resumed operations in September 2015. What happened between 2007 and 2015? The tragic end of the Moammar Gadhafi regime.
