While it looks like the historic summit between North Korea and the United States is back on, it would appear that one of Trump’s major demands my not be met. According to a new CIA assessment North Korea has no intention to denuclearise.
“Everybody knows they are not going to denuclearize,” said one intelligence official who read the CIA report. However, according to the classified report Kim’s regime might be amenable to opening a burger restaurant in the capital Pyongyang. There is no word who the burger restaurant maybe managed by.
As part of the preparation to the historic summit the North held, a demolition ‘ceremony’ of the Punggye-ri nuclear test facility was performed as regime declared it had “completely” dismantled its nuclear test site
Back in the United States, according to a recent Pew Research center poll, about seven-in-ten (71%) approve of the direct talks between the two nations, while just 21% disapprove
“However, the public is skeptical about whether North Korea’s leaders are serious about addressing concerns over its nuclear program.Overall, 49% say North Korea’s leadership is not serious about addressing international concerns over the country’s nuclear enrichment program,” stated the Pew Research poll.
According to the CIA World Fact Book North Korea is a “source country for men, women, and children who are subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking; many North Korean workers recruited to work abroad under bilateral contracts with foreign governments, most often Russia and China, are subjected to forced labor and do not have a choice in the work the government assigns them, are not free to change jobs, and face government reprisals if they try to escape or complain to outsiders”
The fact book also states that tens of thousands of North Koreans, including children, are held in prison camps and are subjected to forced labor, including logging, mining, and farming.
Many North Korean women and girls, lured by the promises of food, jobs, and freedom, have migrated to China illegally to escape poor social and economic conditions only to be forced into prostitution, domestic service, or agricultural work through forced marriages.”
