North Korea

Professor Robert Kelly of Pusan National University on the military threat of North Korea.

by Ben Powell 31 Jan 2018

North Korean military technology development has accelerated far faster than anticipated. This doesn’t represent a huge change of risk for South Korea, which has lived with a military threat from the North for a long time. But the risk to the US has gone from minimal threat to one that is plausible and large. This is a meaningful change that is driving a reaction from the US, and the form that takes may be relevant for global risk. That is the message from Professor Robert Kelly, a political analyst on inter-Korean affairs and associate professor in political science at Pusan National University in Korea.
