In the Asia Times, Dr. Gregory F. Treverton, former chair of the US National Intelligence Council under the Obama administration, and a former director of the RAND Corporation’s Center for Global Risk and Security admitted that while he used to be a non-believer in North Korean denuclearization, his views were now in flux.
“I used to say he would never give up nuclear weapons,” Treverton said in a conference hosted by the East Asian Foundation in Seoul on Friday. “I take seriously now the argument that [North Korean leader Kim Jong-un] has completed his nuclear program, has got all the mileage he can, and wants to cash in.”
Greg is an SMA Executive Advisor, and Professor of the Practice of International Relations at the University of Southern California. You can read the Asia Times article here.
