As international sanctions against North Korea face strategic limitations due to its repetition of nuclear tests and provocations, a new approach to find fundamental solutions for going beyond sanctions required. Negotiations would,of course, be a key tool in any move toward peaceful reunification. But it is difficult to identify be basis for credible negotiations until the ROK is prepared to offer the North Korea elite something better than they at present have.
KOREA'S BEAUTIFUL FOUR SEASONS
Korea is geographically situated in a temperate climate zone at medium latitude. As a result, it has four distinct seasons. In general, spring is from March to May, summer from June to August, autumn from September to November, and winter from December to February. The weather in spring and autumn is clear and dry due to the influence of anticyclones; summer is hot and humid due to Korea's location on the North Pacific Edge; and in winter, continental high pressure brings cold and dry weather.
