Is North Korea in a Different Era?
Corri Zoli, research assistant professor of political science at the Maxwell School and director of research at the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism, was interviewed by WSYR radio regarding the meeting between North Korea and the United States.
Zoli explains that the United States should be concerned about North Korea’s past behavior. However, she also believes that we are now in a different era, “I think we can be optimistic, you know you always have to be skeptical about these things, but I think we can be optimistic that this is a changing era.”
“I think the April summit between the two Korea’s paved the road a little bit for this (meeting between North Korea and U.S) so that local folks could recognize that something was brewing here that was significant.” Zoli finishes with, “I think there is an appetite for change.”
