Do you mean debating one topic at a time, or all of the topics in the same statement?

For my first statement, I'm going to focus on one particular aspect of the "change" you suggested; the military situation of North Korea.

In October 2006, after the DPRK conducted a nuclear test, the United Nations' Security Council imposed sanctions against the DPRK. Backed by the United States, the UN openly condemned North Korea's nuclear program. These sanctions restricted military and technological goods within North Korea, as well as a few financial restrictions. Then, in December 2012, North Korea launched a rocket and satellite into orbit, in which the Security Council followed by tightening the sanctions already in place. Shortly thereafter, in February 2013, North Korea conducted a third nuclear test, which led to the Security Council toughening the sanctions even more so.

Judging by the erratic behavior of the government of North Korea and the threats that were made since the beginning of March, (and the resulting sanctions by the Security Council), the DPRK clearly felt threatened by the US, South Korea, and the UN, to the point of declaring war on South Korea on March 29th 2013. The pressure being put on the Korean nation clearly hasn't benefited either side. Kim Jong-un is making these threats because Kim "needs to show he has the guts. The best way to do that is to use the military might that he commands," said Lee Yoon-gyu, who is a North Korea expert at Korea National Defence University in Seoul. (Quoted from BBC)

So, to summarize, the world HAS been putting pressure on NK for change in their military for the past seven years, yet there's been absolutely no benefits whatsoever. These sanctions are partly to blame for the North Korean's declaration of war on South Korea, and the latest threat by North Korea of an "all out nuclear war", which, obviously, the international community wants to avoid.
