Diplomat defector repeats call for “internal revolt” in North

Thae Yong-ho talks Trump, upcoming nuke tests, and psychological warfare on TV talk show

The South Korean government should provoke a collapse of North Korea's government through a targeted information campaign, former senior diplomat at the North Korean embassy in London Thae Yong-ho told a South Korea variety show on Tuesday night.

“We should collapse the Kim Jong Un regime by causing an internal revolt... I am 100 percent sure that we can do it,” Thae said. “The South Korean government and people should enlighten North Korean citizens to make them stand against Kim Jong Un’s reign of terror.”
