Pritchard said the report called on the U.S. administration "to take a more wholistic approach, a more robust approach and use all the tools that are available" to handle the tensions in the peninsula.

CRF President Richard N. Haass said in the foreword to the report: "The urgency of the threat is undeniable."

Haass said the Task Force report "comprehensively reviews the situation on the peninsula as well as the options for U.S. policy."

"It provides a valuable ranking of U.S. interests, and calls for a firm commitment from the Obama administration to seek denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, backed by a combination of sanctions, incentives, and sustained political pressure, in addition to increased efforts to contain proliferation," Haass said.

The CFR Task Force report came at a timely juncture for U.S. relations in the region, he said. It identified three essential elements of an internationally coordinated response to DPRK nuclear development: denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and an approach that attempts to resolve rather than simply manage the issue; regional cohesion, enabled by close U.S.-South Korea relations; and China's cooperation and active engagement.
