Don't Risk War with North Korea, Experts Warn

Donald Trump

In an article in 38 North, Alexander Vorontsov, head of the Department for Korean and Mongolian Studies and the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russia Academy of Sciences, said North Korean diplomats are anxious the misunderstanding is clouding perceptions of the regime's weapons program.

Amid the backlash to President Donald Trump reportedly referring to countries in Africa and Central America as "shithole countries", NBC News reports that the president made remarks about the race and ethnicity of at least one U.S. official.

"The diplomats told Vorontsov in November, "'it would be suicidal to attack the US first and especially with nuclear weapons.

But Vorontsov also noted in his article for the specialist website on North Korean affairs that Pyongyang remains convinced that the Pentagon is preparing for war on the peninsula.

"In my conversations in Pyongyang, senior North Korean foreign ministry officials did not hide their surprise that Seoul failed to see the huge gap in threat perceptions between American and South Korean societies", Vorontsov stated.

Vorontsov says the North Koreans he spoke with reiterated that they're striving to reach some kind of "nuclear parity" with the US.

President Donald Trump referred to an intelligence analyst as a "pretty Korean lady" and asked why she wasn't talking with the North Koreans to help curb their nuclear weapons program.

A year ago they performed a show celebrating North Korea's nuclear programme and footage from the concert, which was attended by Kim Jong-un and aired on state television, showed the band dressed as sailors.

"'We are diplomats, not military guys".

North Korea boycotted the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, meaning Pyeongchang will be the first Olympics they have attended in the South.

Officials from African countries were taken aback by the report. "They are trying to shake the faithful's beliefs, but it is nothing more than an anachronistic delusion".

Chun, who stopped serving 18 months ago and lives 35 miles from the border with North Korea, explained that even soldiers who defect have "an innate belief in their system which is close to ridiculous".
