Food Aid, Nuclear Digging, Regime Stability, and ‘Sources’: Yong Kwan’s Interview with Chris Green

Christopher Green, the international managing editor for the Daily NK, is one of the most sensible, well-informed voices writing and speaking about North Korea in the English language today.  He is also the author of Destination Pyongyang and, we are pleased to remind you, a vital contributor to our efforts at SinoNK.com.

The analyst, who currently lives and works in Seoul, recently appeared in a 50-minute interview with Yong Kwon on the series Bloggingheads.tv.  Given the fact that Yong Kwon is no schmuck when it comes to DPRK analysis – the Blogingheads interlocutor contributes regularly to Asia Times, and recently started a website focusing on DPRK food aid– makes the whole program particularly worth watching. Most of all, the conversation was a wide-ranging but nevertheless sharp look into what we know, and what we don’t know, about the DPRK today.  How that system stumbles, leaps, lurches or launches forward concerns us all.
