Is North Korean Outreach For Nuclear Negotiations A Sincere Effort? [INTERVIEW]
Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, Director of Defense Studies at the Center for the National Interest, Harry Kazianis joined Chad to discuss the recent moves by North Korea to indicating that the nation may possibly be interested in negotiations with South Korea and the United States over the North Korean nuclear weapons program.
Kazianis talked about similar tactics often used by North Korea, which in the end work out to their advantage.
Asked by Hasty about how much the gestures are believable, Kazianis said,
I don't think any of it. I think, honestly, the more I keep thinking about it, the more I think it's a trap. The North Koreans have a history of doing things like this...And you know what happens? Nothing happens, except for one thing: the North Korean missiles and nuclear programs get better and better as the years go on. So honestly, I think this is just more of the same.
