As the United States and South Korea engage in diplomatic negotiations with North Korea, there are a number of issues on the table, from human rights and military relations, to North Korea’s nuclear program. Some of these issues hit closer to core of making the Korean Peninsula a safer, more secure place, while others are beneficial but more peripheral. Use this interactive to track the issues and their impact levels.

Correction, September 11, 2018: This interactive previously incorrectly stated the number of nuclear weapons that North Korea could create with its fissile material. That sentence has been removed.
