Maximum pressure will not convince N. Korea to denuclearize: NSO advisor
In a new book, Professor Kim Yeon-chul shares his assessment of 70 years of inter-Korean dialogue

The U.S. policy of pushing North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons through strengthening military and economic pressure is unlikely to succeed, Kim Yeon-chul, a professor at the Department of Korean Unification of Inje University and an advisor to the National Security Office (NSO), said in an interview with NK News earlier in the month.

“Washington’s various statements that North Korea will succumb if they strengthen pressure is unrealistic,” Kim said.
