ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on some recent remarks by Roh Moo-hyun, President of South Korea, about North Korea. During his recent visit to Germany, President Roh Moo-hyun said that as far as inter-Korean relations are concerned, it is necessary for the South, from time to time, to get red in the face and dispense bitter medicine to the North. President Roh also said the North was to blame for the current strain in inter-Korean relations as North Korea has breached the South-North declaration on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, while National Defense Commission Chairman Kim Jong-il has yet to make good on his promise to visit to Seoul.
