China maintained their friendly ties with N. Korea - FM

Bennie Garza | 03 November, 2017, 02:18

"There are tens of thousands of North Korean artilleries and short range missiles ready to fire at any moment, along the military demarcation line", he said.

Thae, who defected to South Korea a year ago with his wife and two sons, said the west needs to get information into the country that is specially tailored to help North Koreans break out of the Kim regime's systematic brainwashing. "We should make tailor-made contents which can educate the North Korean population".

Thae Yong-ho told a US Congress hearing on Wednesday, November 1, that Washington should use "soft power" to deter Kim Jong-un from aggression.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and Chinese President Xi Jinping exchanged messages following Xi's re-election.

"Xi said China remains committed to the development of traditionally friendly relations between the [ruling] parties of the two countries and peoples of both states", Hua told a daily briefing.

But while the United States applies diplomatic and military pressure on the regime, which Thae applauded the Trump administration for, he said not almost enough was done to capitalize on the West's most critical advantage-the truth.

Yong-ho is a former deputy chief of mission at the North Korean embassy in London and says that a "civilian uprising" can become a more increasing possibility if more information from the outside world is spread into the general population of North Korea.

"The U.S.is spending billions of dollars to cope with the military threat. Unfortunately, it may be tiny fraction".

The note was note sent in response to congratulations from Kim Jong-un last week for securing a second term as the head of China's ruling party.

Thae noted that North Korea's "free markets are flourishing" and that citizens have found ways to access information from the outside, such as South Korean films and television.

Tense and icy relations between China and North Korea may finally be thawing as the leaders of the two countries are apparently exchanging written correspondence.

Thae, whom North Korea has described as "human scum", told House lawmakers he grew up more privileged than other North Koreans-he received an elite education in China and was later allowed to live and work overseas.

When that didn't work, the regime resorted to importing film content from other communist regimes, and even disseminating cartoons from the West.

"They just watch it for their amusement and entertainment, but that cultural content so far does not actually relate the North Korean citizens' way of thinking, that cultural content can not make North Koreans critically analyze the life of North Korea".
