U.S. official encourages plan for N.Korea collapse

Korea-based expert says waiting for Pyongyang collapse outdated under Kim Jong Un leadership

A former high-ranking U.S. State Department official called for the U.S., South Korea, Japan and China to work together on a plan should North Korea collapse.

In remarks on Tuesday Wendy Sherman, a North Korea expert and advisor to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, said that the U.S. and North Korea’s neighbors must work together to develop “common planning” for unexpected situations, including regime collapse or a coup.
