Sangsoo Lee about North Korea suspending communication hotlines with South Korea

June 10, 2020: The Head of ISDP’s Korea Center, Sangsoo Lee, spoke to Urdu Point about rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

“[It] seems that Pyongyang is gearing up to lay the groundwork for escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula, while blaming South Korea’s hostile acts. By rising the military tensions with provocations, brinkmanship tactics can be used for North Korea again to raise its leverage over the U.S. and South Korea.”
