Episode 35: What Does Kim Jong Un Want?

On this episode of CNA Talks, North Korea analysts Ken Gause, Christopher Steinitz and Sarah Vogler sit down to discuss Kim Jong Un's objectives in the nuclear negotiations. They point out that the nuclear program is an important part of Kim’s legitimacy and something that he will not easily part with, and that the U.S. will probably have to live with a nuclear North Korea in the short term. Finally, the team lays out a path for the negotiations that could eventually reduce North Korea's nuclear arsenal.
