Event Description

After a decades-long effort, North and South Korea officially became the 160th and 161st members of the United Nations on September 17, 1991. Thirty years later, the two countries have taken different paths in their engagement with the international community and their approach to solving global issues such as international development, nonproliferation, and climate change.
