Unification could be solution to N.Korean nuclear issue: former Obama advisor

Gordon Flake says DPRK presents "no good options"

Professor Gordon Flake, CEO at the Perth USAsia Center at the University of Western Australia, has been focused on issues in the Asia-Pacific and on the Korean Peninsula for almost 30 years.

As part of former President Obama's Asia Advisory team for his 2008 and 2012 campaigns, he now believes that the unification of the peninsula, rather than being an end in itself, could be a "means to an end" to solving the North Korean nuclear issue.
