The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the relations between Japan and North Korea, identifying each nation's concept of its own security interests. I have, by way of introduction, described the present status of Korea, both north and south, and examined the transitory division between the two halves of what both profess is a single divided country. Chapter II examines the strategic significance of the Korean peninsula to China, the Soviet Union, the United States, and Japan. Chapters III and IV discuss North Korea and Japan's foreign policy goals, especially as they relate to internal and external security considerations. Chapter V attempts to determine the nature of the accommodation between North Korea and Japan, based on their own strategic interests. The effect of this accommodation on the United States, should it accelerate, reaching a positive conclusion; should it drag on with little progress; or should it fail, will be examined in Chapter VI.
