Sports, not sanctions, will encourage North Korea to denuclearize: ROK governor

In exclusive interview, Choi Moon-soon also says anti-DPRK leaflets are ‘ineffective’ and threaten local citizens’ lives

The international community should reconsider whether sanctions have achieved any progress toward North Korea’s denuclearization, the South Korean governor of the only province spanning both Koreas told NK News in an exclusive interview.

Speaking to NK News at the Jeongseon Forum on Thursday, Gangwon Province Governor Choi Moon-soon also said Pyongyang is uncomfortable with offers of “humanitarian” assistance, as it implies a sense of pity.
