North Korea should not give up its nuclear weapons for its national security.
Having nuclear weapons can be a good diplomatic tool for North Korea to make bargains with big countries.
Brad Glosserman, the executive director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in the US, argued,
"if North Korea didn’t get international assistance including food then its people would starve so it needed to be “public enemy number two”, inspiring just enough fear to keep other countries at bay but not enough for them to attack."
"Historically, nuclear weapons have been used to either threaten or to deter enemies. However, it seems that North Korea had another goal in mind: using the weapon as a bargaining chip to bring the United States to the negotiation table."
North Korean nuclear strategies in terms not only of military and war-fighting strategy, but also of political and diplomatic tools.
North Korea can use the card of its nuclear weapons
to get materials including food and energy from the international community.
Other countries might see through the bargaining strategies and will not be fooled again.
