ABSTRACT
The article presents a chronology of events leading to the underground nuclear weapons testing by North Korea. In 1945, after World War II, the Japanese occupation of Korea ends with Soviet troops occupying the north and U.S. troops occupying the south. North Korea in 1992 agrees to allow inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency, but over the next two years refuses access to sites of suspected nuclear weapons production. It tested a nuclear weapon in an underground site in October 2006.
