Fmr. North Korean diplomat says Kim Jong-un will not denuclearize: CNN Updated: 2021-02-02 03:55:51 KST

North Korea's leader will not give up nuclear weapons, but may be willing to negotiate an arms reduction for sanctions relief.
That's coming from Pyeongyang's former acting ambassador to Kuwait in an interview with CNN on Monday.
Ryu Hyeon-woo said the regime's nuclear power is directly linked to its stability, and Kim Jong-un likely believes it is key to his own survival.
The former diplomat pointed out, previous U.S. administrations put the communist state in a difficult position in negotiations by demanding denuclearization up front.
Ryu believes President Joe Biden will handle the issue wisely based on his experience on the Iran nuclear deal.
The former North Korean official adopted his current name after defecting to South Korea in 2019.
