Rachel Minyoung Lee for 38North: The Real Significance of North Korea’s Recent Military Activities

ONN's Regional Issues Manager and Senior Analyst Rachel Minyoung Lee's latest piece for 38 North examines the DPRK's ongoing military activities in the context of the country's shifting policy on the USA.

In the analysis, Lee says Pyongyang's pivot toward China and Russia signals a fundamental shift away from its more than three-decade policy of nonalignment with these two neighbours and efforts to normalize relations with the United States of America, giving the DPRK less motivation than before to return to diplomacy.
