Skip to comments.Defector: North Korea will never give up their nukes

Leading up to the much-anticipated meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore next month, a former North Korean official says the country is only putting on a show about getting rid of their nuclear weapons.
Thae Yong-Ho defected from North Korea in 2016, where he was the deputy ambassador to Great Britain. He said, In the end, North Korea will remain a nuclear power packaged as a non-nuclear power.
He explained that the North would oppose intrusive inspections as they would be viewed as a process of breaking down Kim Jong Uns absolute power in front of the eyes of ordinary North Koreans and elites.
The remarks from Yong-Hu come during the recent release of his memoir, in which he states, More people should realize that North Korea is desperately clinging to its nuclear program more than anything.

What sensible reason is there for Little Rocket Man to give up his nukes? Even if we see video of him destroying them, how do we know he doesn't have others in reserve? Even if he agrees to inspections, how do we know there aren't secret locations we don't know to inspect?
Fred Schultz was right -- you can trust the Communists to be Communists.
Oops, Fred Schwartz.
Glenn Beck. Never Trumper till the end.
I really feel somehow we’re being played. They did a 180 degree turn around on a dime. You just rarely ever see such a dramatic policy shift overnight.
Rumors were that the collapse of their testing site tunnels killed all their scientists and technicians, and they don’t have anything left...............
More useless bloviation from Blenn Dreck!
He defected in 2016. I believe that is before China read the North Korean dictator the riot act. Also before his sister saw the fruits of capitalism during the winter Olympics.
Time frame of defection was pre-Trump. The world has changed.
Couple hundred of them if I recall that report correctly.
I’m convinced their nuke and missile programs were a proxy for Iran. Iran had pallets of cash to spend on the programs.
We all know the “agreement” will come down to inspections, which Rocket Man will not allow. But take it a step at a time.
It is also the reason he has capitulated so quickly on giving up the nuclear program. I know that everyone will DOUBT ME on this, but explain why there are no traces of radioactivity coming out of the area where the alleged tests were done.
Well, they either give up the nukes or they don’t, we’ll see. Trump said if he has to walk he will.
The Trump crew has already stated that the Norks have to give up their refinement equipment, kill the program so it can’t be re-constituted and send any nukes/nuclear material to us....time will tell but the conditions that are bringing Kim to the table will only get worse if he refuses.....
What I’m concerned about is that he’ll give us everything we want, but secretly not comply. This is what Communists do.
Sanctions work...that’s the long and short of it.
And just how the heck would you know that?
North Korea Starts to Dismantle Nuclear-Test Site
I doubt he’d get away with it - Trump will insist on full access as an on-going deal before he loosens his grip on Kim’s gonads...Kim will either comply or see the pain intensify....a military coup against Kim might be the biggest problem and then the country would finish its disintegration.
