Part 3 considers the participation and engagement by the Asia-Pacific in the treaty’s development and its implementation. Part 4 explores the non-participation by the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea (DPRK); Part 5 discusses the use, and subsequent abandonment, of chemical weapons by Japan in China from 1937 to 1945 and includes an analysis of the contribution the CWC has been able to make to this ongoing problem.
