Modernizing the Agreed Framework

VON HIPPEL, David; HAYES, Peter; SAVAGE, Timothy; and NAKATA, Masami, Nautilus Institute

PDF version

Argues that while the DPRK will be unable to safely operate the light-water reactors being supplied under the Framework, replacing one of the reactors with a thermal power plant, as some have suggested, is an equally impractical solution. Instead, the United States could consider offering a package of infrastructure assistance to the DPRK in exchange for changes in heavy fuel oil (HFO) deliveries. The US could explore with the DPRK alternative services-grid refurbishment, power plant and boiler rehabilitation, fuel supply infrastructure rebuilding, and alternative electricity sources and energy-efficiency improvements-that could be provided with a portion of the funds now earmarked for HFO purchases.

A Vessel Traffic System Analysis for the Korea/Tsushima Strait

PAHUL, Linda, Ocean Law & Policy Institute

PDF version

Examines shipping interests, particularly those related to marine transport of oil, in relation to other contending interests, namely fishing, exploration, security and freedom of navigation, in the Korea/Tsushima Strait. One method for reconciling some of the conflicts between shipping and other interests is with a maritime traffic control (MTC) scheme. There is currently no active MTC scheme in the Strait. MTC schemes include active Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) systems and passive Traffic Separation Systems (TSS). A VTS system does not seem appropriate for the Korea/Tsushima Strait at this time because of its cost and complexity. However, a TSS would be appropriate.
