PSI Interdiction and the Omnidirectional Response

The South Korean government is considering expanding its participation in the Proliferation Security Initiative, which is designed to halt the spread of WMDs by granting rights of interdiction against countries suspected of engagement in transferring WMD technology.  It is linking the satellite launch with the issue of WMDs and demonstrating that that there are measures in addition to sanctions from which it is able to choose. If South Korea does sign up to the remaining three clauses of the Proliferation Security Initiative -two of which grant the right to interdiction  of vessels on the high seas suspected of carrying WMD related materials’s – some analysts believe the response from the North could be a military one and an omnidirectional one.
