North Korea declared in built nuclear weapons in early 2005, and it tested medium- and long-range missiles in July 2006. The U.N. implemented its first sanctions against North Korea as a result, but the country again tested missiles in 2008 and 2009. It also declared it was withdrawing from the armistice in 2009 because North Korea was joining the U.S.-led anti-proliferation plan.
