I. Introduction
Bruce Klingner, Korea analyst for Eurasia Group, the world's largest political risk consultancy firm, writes: "Pyongyang's actions will affect the public's perceptions of Roh's engagement policy. North Korea's agreement to a joint statement of principles on 19 September might have offered a respite to Roh's declining popularity had Pyongyang not followed with a provocative statement within 24 hours... Despite $3.5 billion in South Korean aid during the past decade, Seoul has achieved little change to North Korean behavior or the nature of its regime."
