Andrei Lankov on North Korea’s Nuclear Threat Diplomacy

"Due to nuclear weapons, North Korea need not worry about attacks from other countries, including the U.S."

In light of recent saber rattling, Subin Kim recently caught up with renowned North Korea expert Dr. Andrei Lankov for an in-depth interview that looked at Pyongyang's nuclear threat diplomacy and perpetual search for aid and donors, among other issues.

Filing the original interview in Korean with South Korean specialist outlet Defense 21, Kim was kind enough to share the full transcript with NK NEWS so that English speaking readers could benefit from Dr. Lankov's timely insights.
