Dr. Lassina Zerbo discusses arms control, denuclearization, and prospects for a grand deal
June 25th, 2019

Month in Review

Solving the North Korean nuclear issue is not a South Korean problem or an American one, but rather a global conundrum that will require the weight of the world’s international institutions to resolve. The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) is one such institution.

NK News managing editor Oliver Hotham was fortunate enough to recently sit down with CTBTO head Dr. Lassina Zerbo to discuss the CTBTO’s role on the Korean peninsula, the “definition” of denuclearization, and how the treaty can help narrow the chasm between Washington and Pyongyang.

Dr. Lassina Zerbo is the Executive Secretary of the CTBT Organization. During a professional career spanning nearly 25 years, Dr. Zerbo has developed expertise ranging from scientific and technical competencies to results-based management and multilateral diplomacy.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interview with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
