“Kim appears to be in full control of national affairs.”

“The heir apparent [third son Kim Jong-un] also appears to be on a fast track to power,” the senior secretary added. “I’ve never heard anything about power struggles within North Korean leadership ranks.”

He does agree with Lankov and others regarding the disastrous effects of the recent currency reform.
