The conflict I am currently examining is the goals of North Korea versus the goals of the rest of the world. There are many stakeholders, but there are two main 'sides,' so to speak. The first is North Korea itself, who is and has been developing nuclear weapons, claiming that it needs them to defend itself. While this claim cannot be proven, the other main 'side,' of this conflict is the majority of the world, which wishes to see North Korea greatly reduce its nuclear arsenal. There's a lot at stake here for both sides. The majority of the world have worked to negotiate a compromise, but they have been rejected by the North Koreans. That's what makes this such a difficult problem to solve - both goals run counter to each other. One 'side' cannot achieve its goals without the other 'sides,' goals failing. The world have been honest and clear in their goals, while North Korea's ambitions with their nuclear arsenal is still unknown. North Korea may have to work with the rest of the world to write a treaty they would be willing to sign. While it may be rather unlikely that any treaty written without North Korea would be signed, as it's hard to accommodate for the elusive state, as their plans and ambitions are relatively unknown.
