North Korea

In The Moment ... May 8, 2018 Show 332 Hour 1

As the world poises to hear from President Donald Trump about whether or not he will pull America out of the Iran nuclear accord, we broaden our view of the map by welcoming former U.S. Senator Larry Pressler to In the Moment.

His 2017 book Neighbours in Arms is part memoir, part history lesson, part sounding call for nuclear disarmament. The book takes readers behind the scenes during the years of the Pressler Amendment and the debate over what to do about Pakistan's quest for nuclear arms.

FRONTLINE: Secret State Of North Korea

Jan 13, 2014

Just two years on the job and armed with nuclear weapons, North Korea's Kim Jong-Un is the world's youngest dictator, ruling one of the world's most isolated countries with an iron fist. Like his father and grandfather, he is trying to maintain tight control over what the world sees of North Korea - and what North Koreans see of the world. But as FRONTLINE reveals in Secret State of North Korea, cracks are starting to appear in the regime's information barrier, and it's becoming more porous.

Black Hills State University International student Hye Jung Bang is from South Korea and has been in the United States for just one month. Bang says she is concerned about family and friends back home in light of the combative rhetoric coming from North Korea.
 

Bang is here in South Dakota studying English interpretation and translation – she left South Korea just weeks ago. She says the relationship between North and South Korea is complicated and confusing.
