North Korea Doesn’t Want To Dismantle Its Nuclear Weapons
Surprise, Surprise. North Korea has no intentions to dismantle its nuclear program. On Wednesday, North Korean officials accused the United States government of having “awfully sinister” intentions. After they found out the purpose of their attempt at reconciliation, officials from the North Korean government were not impressed.
They have another meeting on the 12th of June in Singapore because the “US is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment.”
Two weeks ago, we reported it was ridiculous to ask the North Korean government to drop their arms programs because of the hypocrisy of it all.
Don’t Expect Denuclearization Anytime Soon
North Korea is a country that exists on its own, in an international system where they’re the outcast. If the reports on what they’ve done are true, then they certainly deserve it, but either way, the likelihood of them ditching their weapons is nil to none, for reasons explained in another article on ataraxik.com
Regarding their demands, the North Korean government asked for South Korea to put an end to “anti-DPRK” policies. (Democratic People’s Republic Of Korea).
With the summit day on its way, South Korean officials are trying to make sure that “Trump and his people” don’t push the situation any further than it can manage.
Furthermore, North Korea has begun looking outside of its itself for solutions to its economic problems. They sent envoys to China to learn about their economic model for the sake of improving their own.
What’s interesting about China is that it’s probably the only country in the world with its current “free market totalitarianism”-model. As a matter of fact, China’s economic model is now similar to the US. They just have a totally different form of government.
Nevertheless, a Chinese official said something similar to the theme mentioned above. Cai Jian, the deputy director for the Center for Korean Studies at Fudan University, explained, “the US attitude has not even slightly changed.” If North Korea has shown “willingness and sincerity to cooperate,” the American government at least has to meet them halfway.
