US-North Korea Nuclear Talks May Be Back to Square One Under Biden
By Kyodo News 10 November 2020
Fears are mounting that US-North Korea negotiations on denuclearization may end up back at square one as President-elect Joe Biden is expected to put more pressure on Pyongyang to urge leader Kim Jong Un to abandon his nuclear ambitions.
If Kim, who has attempted to obtain security guarantees from the United States by building a better rapport with President Donald Trump, judges Democrat Biden will reject dialogue, North Korea could step up the development of new weapons to counter Washington.
Pyongyang, in the worst-case scenario, might resume nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles that can target the US, probably making the security environment in East Asia more uncertain and even dangerous.
