Former North Korea Official Says Nuclear War Threats Are A Bluff And Kim Jong-un Seeks Relationship With U.S.

Ri Jong Ho, formally of North Korea, says they don't actually want a war

Making a public U.S. appearance for the first time, high-level North Korean defector Ri Jong Ho says the North Korean economy may not survive a year under the tough sanctions of the U.N. Ri Jong-ho, who ran an international network of North Korean businesses which funnelled money into the hermit kingdom, said that, despite all the threats of nuclear war, North Korea “desperately wants relations with the U.S.”
