Gordon Chang: It Is Better that Both Koreas Are Talking to Each Other Rather than Killing Each Other

‘At this particular time, yeah, it is better that they’re talking to each other than killing each other’

EXCERPT:

CHANG: "The thing I’m concerned about is that we have not seen a fundamental change in the outlook of Kim Jong-un. For instance, during his new year’s address, he actually talked about how sanctions were hurting him. Of course he wants to come to South Korea and get sanctions relief. The other thing that’s important is that this is stage three in a four-stage process we’ve seen from the Kim regime for about seven decades. First of all, you refuse to talk to South Korea. Then you make a bold overture. Then you demand concessions. That’s where we are right now. they’re asking for stuff. And if you don’t get what you want, you throw a tantrum. At this particular time, yeah, it is better that they’re talking to each other than killing each other."
