Kim Jong-un and North Korea’s criminality

Sheena Chestnut – a friend and former Oxford classmate – recently had an article published in the Sunday Review section of The New York Times: A North Korean Corleone.

She has written some very interesting things about the illicit dabbling of the North Korean regime, including in terms of nuclear weapons proliferation.

Very interesting article Milan. Your friend does an excellent job of clarifying why this dictatorship requires money to survive.

I wonder, as I now work in South Korea, if there is any criminal activity between the two divided states, state approved or otherwise.

In my daily interactions with South Koreans, I’ve managed to bring the topic of North Korea up when it is suitable. For the most part, South Koreans are unafraid of its troubled northern neighbour. Considering the proximity, and the constant threat of conflict, I found that interesting.

It is certainly surprising. Between the artillery and small nuclear arsenal in the North, there is a lot for South Koreans to worry about.
