    The Way Forward on North Korea
    June 15, 2001

    On June 13 U.S. special envoy Jack Pritchard met North Korea's U.N. envoy Li hyong Chol in New York, beginning a dialogue between the Bush administration and the government in Pyongyang. Applauding the administration's decision, an Independent Task Force on Korea sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations asserts that "no critics have offered a better idea than the difficult course of sustained, hard-headed engagement in pursuit of U.S. and allied interests."

     
  • Proliferation Analysis
    Continental Divide
    June 14, 2001

    Can President Bush bridge the widening divisions between his policies and the positions of the European allies? On climate change, the death penalty, threat assessments, peacekeeping, sanctions and missile defense, the President seems the odd man out in the NATO alliance.

    Background on Test of New Iranian Missile
    May 31, 2001

    On Thursday, May 31, Iran's state-run radio reported the successful test of a new solid fuel ballistic missile. If the reports are true, the test represents a significant step forward for Tehran's missile programs.

    Pre-Boost Intercept
    May 30, 2001

    The Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty intercepted and destroyed over 2600 missiles. Its success may be one reason the NATO allies are reluctant to abandon proven arms control arrangements for untested missile defenses.

     
  • Proliferation Analysis
    Jeffords' Jump Jolts Agenda
    May 24, 2001

    A Democratic Senate will fundamentally change the non-proliferation policy calculus in Washington. Historically, a Republican president and a Democratic Congress have been the most favorable combination for reducing nuclear risks and advancing non-proliferation goals. Project Director Joseph Cirincione explains why.

    Bush Administration Puts Plutonium Disposition Program at Risk
    May 21, 2001

    The United States Department of Energy is suspending work on one of two possible ways to dispose of excess weapons plutonium in the United States, casting doubt U.S. commitments on arms control and non-proliferation and endangering the future of efforts to reduce Russia's enormous stockpile of plutonium.

    New Delhi: Searching for an "Alliance of Interests" with Washington
    May 15, 2001

    On May 11, on the third anniversary of India's nuclear tests, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage met with top Indian government officials to talk about missile defenses and non-proliferation concerns. His message found a receptive audience. Three years after the nadir in U.S.-India relations, the turnaround in relations is striking.

    The Shape of Spins to Come
    May 8, 2001

    Many Bush administration officials came into office believing the claims of advocates that we already have an effective military defense against missiles—all that has been lacking has been the political will to deploy. But these officials had their own mind-bending experience as Pentagon leaders carefully explained that there is no missile defense.
