South Korea balks---

On Monday, November 13, South Korea decided it will not impose any new sanctions on North Korea in response to their northern neighbor's nuclear weapons program. Further, the Seoul government refuses to sign the 2003 Proliferation Security Initiative which calls for member nations to interdict and inspect ships suspected to be carrying weapons of mass destruction for rogue states. They fear that such interdictions would jeopardize the fragile cease fire between the two nations.

It appears to me that South Korea's bluff was called by Kim Jong Il and the southern country backed down.
