North Korea Pushing U.S. to Tolerate Missile Tests and Nuclear Program, Says Panel

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When America’s enemies see a weak appeaser leading America they will exploit it. The corrupt mainstream media viciously attacked President Trump’s peace through strength policies against North Korea. That is because they were working beautifully and the media couldn’t stand it. Well, today North Korea is now pushing the weak Biden Administration to accept it’s nuclear tests and nuclear program. America’s enemies have no fear for whatsoever for the Biden Administration. It’s stunning.

North Korea Pushing U.S. to Tolerate Missile Tests and Nuclear Program, Says Panel

By USNI, November 2021

North Korea’s goal in dealing with the U.S. is to have Washington tolerate Pyongyang possessing nuclear weapons, a leading expert on international security said Monday.

Kim Jong Un has “found this very sweet spot,” regarding missile testing without provoking the United States, while also sending out peace feelers to South Korea, Mi Sue Terry, director for Korean history and public policy at the Wilson Center, said at a day-long forum at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Washington is “at a worse spot” now in trying to negotiate the denuclearization of the peninsula, she said. Pyongyang “is trying to diversify its weapons” – with an arsenal of land-based, mobile, submarine-launched and cruise missiles with different ranges and payloads.

At the same time, Kim is pushing for “significant sanctions relief” from the sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council and the U.S. on North Korea for developing its nuclear weapons program. Terry added the North Korean leader is far more interested in sanctions relief than joining the U.S., China and South Korea in a formal declaration ending the Korean War.

In short, panelists discussing the possibility of denuclearizing the peninsula saw the stalemate continuing, as the South Koreans head to the polls in March to elect a new president to succeed President Moon Jae-in. Moon favored negotiations with Pyongyang and has pressed for a declaration ending the war.

Richard Johnson, deputy assistant secretary of defense for countering weapons of mass destruction, said the Biden administration understands past negotiations over North Korea’s nuclear weapons programs have gone nowhere, but it remains “open to exploring” diplomatic channels with Kim.

“We’re prepared to take calibrated steps” to reach that goal, but “we have to have a negotiating partner.”

So far, North Korea has shown little interest in resuming negotiations.

Johnson said that in the administration’s review of Korean policy, it reaffirmed Washington’s commitment to Seoul and Tokyo to come to their defense under security treaties with both if attacked.

Speaking at a later panel, Kim Il-young, an associate professor at Hanyang University, said “the weakest link” in that trilateral security arrangement is the historically sour relations between South Korea and Japan. While there are political opportunities in both countries, with a new government in Japan and one coming in South Korea in May, tensions remain high.

In 2019, a dispute over trade led to a temporary end to the agreement covering three-way sharing of intelligence between the U.S., South Korea and Japan.
