North Korea’s Nuclear Threat: VICE News Interviews Victor Cha

Victor Cha was President George W. Bush’s top advisor on North Korea and participated in the Six-Party Talks, in which the US, Russia, China, Japan and South Korea tried to negotiate with the regime of late leader Kim Jong-il to halt North Korea’s nuclear program. The talks were unsuccessful, and North Korea’s nuclear capabilities have never been greater.

In January, North Korea conducted a nuclear test for the fourth time since 2009, successfully detonating what it claimed was a hydrogen bomb. A month later, North Korea launched a satellite into orbit, violating an international ban on ballistic missile testing. The UN Security Council recently voted to enact harsh new sanctions, which prompted young leader Kim Jong-un to publicly order his military to ready their nukes for use at any time.

VICE News sat down with Cha, now a senior adviser and the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, to talk about North Korea’s nuclear threats, Pyongyang’s uneasy alliance with China, and the state of the Kim regime.

Tony Blair and Countering Violent Extremism: The VICE News Interview

After leaving office in 2007, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair endured criticism for his role in the Iraq War and controversy surrounding his selection as a United Nations peace envoy in the Middle East.

No longer an envoy, Blair has now come to the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC to kick off a commission on countering violent extremism (CVE). Together with his co-chair, former CIA director and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Blair plans to provide the next US president with advice on combating what he sees as an existential threat.

VICE News sits down with Blair to discuss what he, Panetta, and the CVE commission hope to achieve.
