Peace and Prosperity Ep.50
▶N. Korea fires projectiles in first test of the year

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un fired Ri Man-gon, one of his closest aides who led the ruling Worker’s Party’s powerful Organization and Guidance Department on Feb. 28. Ri became the first senior official to be publicly dismissed since Jang Song-thaek, Kim’s uncle who was purged in 2013. North Korean state media cited corruption as the reason for Ri’s removal without providing further details. A few days later on March 2, North Korea fired two short-range projectiles towards the East Sea in its first weapons test of the year. The projectiles were fired from what the North claims to be a super-large multiple rocket launcher, with an interval of 20 seconds. What message is Kim trying to send with the public dismissal of a top party official and the projectile launch?

To break down the latest developments, we are joined by Woo Jung-Yeop, Director at the Center for American Studies at the Sejong Institute. We also connect with guest experts on Skype to broaden the perspective, including Douglas Paal, Distinguished Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Ian Williams, Deputy Director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
