The German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has confirmed that his government will provide Ukraine with some of its Leopard- Two battle tanks, and allow other countries to do likewise. Also on the programme, the Indian government attempts to crackdown on screenings of a documentary which examines Prime Minister Modi's time as Chief Minister of Gujarat. And, five months after North Korea declared "victory" over covid, there are reports that a five-day lockdown has been ordered in Pyongyang because of an unnamed "respiratory illness".

Improving the lives of the North Korean people and ensuring they can exercise universal rights and liberties are among the most important tasks for international actors working in and with the country. But digging beneath the surface quickly reveals that humanitarianism and human rights are different spheres with significantly different approaches to the problems facing the country. This week, Danielle Chubb and Nazanin Zadeh-Cumming join the NK News Podcast to discuss their recent paper exploring an area of common ground between the two camps — disability rights — and the potential for further meaningful change in this space. The two scholars also talk about how to overcome the politicization of engagement with Pyongyang, why North Korea rejects human rights as irrelevant and how the U.N. Commission of Inquiry report in 2014 led to positive changes. Danielle Chubb (@danielle_chb) is an associate professor of international relations at Deakin University in Geelong, Australia. Nazanin Zadeh-Cummings (@nzadehcummings) is the Associate Director of Research at the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership and a senior lecturer in Humanitarian Studies at Deakin.

In this episode of the ChinaPower Podcast, we are joined by Dr. Victor Cha to discuss the changing dynamics on the Korean Peninsula and the relationship between China and North Korea. He explains that despite outward appearances, the China-DPRK relationship is deeply fraught and not as close as it may seem. Dr. Cha reveals that between a strict Covid-19 lockdown and the sanctions imposed between 2016-2017, North Korea's dependence on China has fallen and Beijing may now lack adequate tools to place pressure on Pyongyang. Lastly, Dr. Cha challenges the notion that the United States and China share goals for a nuclear-free Korean peninsula. Rather, he contends, the two share common ground in wanting to prevent conflict on the peninsula. Dr. Victor Cha is a Senior Vice President for Asia and holds the CSIS Korea Chair. He is professor of government and holds the D.S. Song-KF Chair in the Department of Government and the School of Foreign Service (SFS) at Georgetown University. In July 2019, he was appointed vice dean for faculty and graduate affairs in SFS. While working for the White House between 2004-2007, Dr. Cha was the director for Asian affairs at the National Security Council. He was responsible primarily for Japan, the Korean peninsula, Australia/New Zealand, and Pacific Island nation affairs. Dr. Cha was also the deputy head of delegation for the United States at the Six-Party Talks in Beijing. He is the author of five books, including the award-winning Alignment Despite Antagonism: The United States-Korea-Japan Security Triangle.

Kim Kang-woo escaped North Korea in 2016, promising his widowed mother that he would raise the money needed to get her out too. But after brokers were unable to arrange her escape, he decided to take matters into his own hands, crossing the border back into North Korea to attempt a dramatic rescue that reads like something out of a movie script. Washington Post journalist Michelle Ye Hee Lee reported on Kim's unique story last year and joins the NK News podcast to talk about the immense dangers, costs and heartbreak that North Koreans face when they decide to escape the country.  Lee also discusses reporting on North Korea through Tik Tok, Pyongyang's own experiments with social media, what it was like in Japan when North Korea sent a missile over the country last year and more.

Multiple North Korean drones entered ROK airspace and even breached a no-fly zone near the presidential office late last year, prompting Seoul to order its own unmanned aerial vehicle to cross the border and photograph a DPRK military facility. The Yoon administration's stated eagerness to “punish” what it considers North Korean provocations has significantly upped the stakes on the Korean Peninsula, and the risk of miscommunication and poor signaling leading to conflict looks set to continue to increase in 2023. This week, the NK News team joins the podcast to consider the new risk environment in the region and other recent North Korea developments.

Corée du Nord: l'inquiétude d'une transfuge nord-coréenne pour son pays

Reportage International

Plus fermée que jamais. Voilà plus de trois ans que la Corée du Nord a renforcé significativement le contrôle de ses frontières et de sa population pour contrôler la pandémie. Malgré des informations très limitées, l'isolement du pays inquiète de nombreuses ONG, notamment au sujet de la sécurité alimentaire des 25 millions de Nord-Coréens, alors que les récoltes n'ont pas été très bonnes dans l'un des pays les plus pauvres au monde. Une situation qui inquiète les quelque 30 000 transfuges nord-coréens passés au sud. Les températures glaciales de la capitale sud-coréenne n'effraie pas Kim Na-young*. À 26 ans, elle a passé 23 hivers en Corée du Nord, où le thermomètre peut descendre jusqu'à -30, avant de passer au sud. « Je n'ai personne de ma famille nucléaire, mais j'ai beaucoup de proches encore sur place comme ma grand-mère maternelle et ma tante qui m'ont élevée », raconte-t-elle. C'est dans les locaux du groupe des médias de l'unification, organisme visant à promouvoir les droits de l'homme en Corée du Nord, qu'elle nous accueille. Comme beaucoup d'autres transfuges, elle est inquiète pour son pays: « Depuis que je suis arrivée ici, j'ai été en contact avec des personnes en Corée du Nord à plusieurs reprises, donc j'ai entendu parler de la situation sur place et on m'a dit que c'était très inquiétant. Mais comme j'étais infirmière là-bas, c'était quelque chose auquel je m'attendais… » Un recours constant au marché noir pour se soigner Le pays a dû affronter une vague de Covid-19 qui a démarré officiellement en mai dernier et Na-young connaît les failles du système de santé nord-coréen. « Le système de santé est cent fois meilleur à Pyongyang que dans le reste du pays. Si vous voulez recevoir des soins, vous devez d'abord vous rendre à l'hôpital, le médecin vous donne une ordonnance et il faut aller à la pharmacie. Mais ça, c'est la théorie. Car en réalité, les gens vont au marché noir pour acheter des médicaments. La plupart sont des produits de contrebande. Il y a beaucoup de faux médicaments, certains qui viennent de Chine, d'Asie du Sud-Est ou d'Allemagne. Et le problème, c'est que même si les gens ont leur ordonnance, ils ne s'adressent pas à des pharmaciens mais à de simples commerçants. Et si vous voulez une opération ou un traitement particulier, il faudra absolument payer, même si officiellement c'est gratuit », explique la transfuge.  Le prix du riz en forte augmentation Autre source d'inquiétude : la situation alimentaire. De mauvaises récoltes et une baisse des importations dues au contrôle strict des frontières ont fait grimper le prix du riz, produit essentiel en Corée du Nord. « Pour les Nord-Coréens, si tu manges, tu vis, si tu ne manges pas, tu meures et c'est pour cela que le riz est aussi important. En travaillant à l'hôpital, j'ai vu des gens mourir de faim. Donc en fait pour les Nord-Coréens, la question déterminante ce n'est pas : qu'est-ce que je peux manger ? Mais est-ce que je peux manger ? Ainsi, en Corée du Nord, l'importance du prix du riz est similaire à celle du dollar pour l'économie mondiale. Tous les prix de tous les produits dépendent de celui du riz, c'est à ce point-là important pour la société nord-coréenne. Donc si les prix augmentent, ceux qui ne peuvent pas en acheter seront affamés, seront en mauvaise santé et pourront éventuellement mourir. En fait, la hausse du prix du riz, cela veut dire que les circuits d'importations fonctionnent mal et que tout va augmenter. Donc le pays sera plus pauvre et ce sera plus dur d'y vivre », détaille-t-elle. Malgré une hausse des coûts depuis le début de la pandémie, Na-young, comme beaucoup d'autres transfuges, continue d'envoyer chaque année de l'argent à ses proches en Corée du Nord. * Les prénoms ont été modifiés

Si le lancement de plusieurs missiles nucléaires par la Corée du Nord inquiète la communauté internationale, certains faits, en provenance de Pyongyang, semblent relever davantage de l'anecdote, du moins au premier abord. En effet, les archéologues du très officiel Institut d'histoire de la Corée du Nord viennent d'annoncer une surprenante découverte. Ils auraient trouvé le repaire où se cachait une licorne ! Oui, vous avez bien entendu : il s'agit bien de cet animal fabuleux qui, depuis le Moyen-Âge, a nourri nombre de légendes. Et, pour les savants nord-coréens, il ne s'agirait pas de n'importe quelle licorne. Celle dont on vient de découvrir la tanière au centre de la capitale, Pyongyang, aurait servi de monture au Roi légendaire TongMyong. En l'an 37 avant notre ère, ce souverain aurait fondé le royaume de Goguryeo, qui aurait duré jusqu'à la fin du VIIe siècle. Il est vrai qu'il ne faut s'étonner de rien avec la dynastie des Kim qui, depuis l'accession au pouvoir, en 1948, de Kim Il-sung, le premier représentant de la lignée, tient la Corée du Nord d'une main de fer. En effet, les légendes les plus diverses courent à propos du père et de ses deux fils. Ainsi, l'un d'entre eux, Kim Jong-il, qui gouverne le pays de 1994 à 2011, aurait écrit pas moins de 1.500 livres et aurait, par sa mort, arraché des larmes aux oiseaux eux-mêmes. Alors, pourquoi ne pas croire en cette licorne ? En réalité, l'objectif de ce conte pour enfants s'inscrit dans une volonté d'asseoir la légitimité de la Corée du Nord. En mettant en exergue le royaume de Goguryeo, on consolide la position actuelle du pays. En effet, ce royaume s'étendait sur le territoire actuel de la Corée du Nord, ce qui permet à son dirigeant de revendiquer une antériorité historique sur la Corée du Sud. Mais, en plus, ce royaume englobait une partie de la Mandchourie actuelle. Ce qui est, en quelque sorte, un pied de nez à la Chine, dont certaines traditions revendiquent l'annexion de la Corée du Nord. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

We have no quarrel with you in the Aegean.” At an event in the southeastern Mardin province, Erdogan said Greece “did some crazy things” in the Aegean sea and Turkiye also did “what was necessary,” His remarks came after Greek planes tried to interfere in a NATO training mission conducted in international airspace over the Aegean Sea. *) Thousands protest in Paris against immigration bill Thousands of people took to the streets of the French capital Paris on the occasion of International Migrants Day to protest against a new immigration draft law. After gathering at the Porte de la Chapelle metro station, they started walking towards the city centre. The demonstrators held banners saying "racists, fascists, get off our streets". Calling for more solidarity with irregular migrants, they expressed their opposition to the immigration bill promoted by Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin. *) North Korea conducts 'final-stage test' for building spy satellite North Korea has carried out an "important final-stage test" for the development of a spy satellite, which it will complete by April next year, the state media reported. Monday's report comes a day after Seoul's military said it had detected launches by Pyongyang of two medium-range ballistic missiles. Analysts say developing such a satellite would provide North Korea with cover for testing banned intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), as they share much of the same technology. *) Messi is here: Argentina win World Cup 2022 against France Argentina have won the 2022 FIFA World Cup in a heated match against France that went to a penalty shootout after it finished 3-3 in extra time.

In 2019, the activist Adrian Hong led a daring raid on North Korea's Embassy in Madrid, stealing hard drives and documents and apparently assaulting embassy staff. Initial news reports suggested that Free Joseon, Hong's human rights activist group that advocates for overthrowing the Kim regime in Pyongyang, was behind the raid. But it soon became clear that it was far more complex than a simple smash-and-grab, possibly even involving the CIA and a fake kidnapping attempt. In his new book, “The Rebel and the Kingdom,” Bradley Hope attempts to unpack the events of that February day by focusing on the ringleader himself. And he joins the NK News podcast this week to discuss his findings — from Hong's upbringing and background in DPRK human rights to how he put together Free Joseon and the continuing fallout from the Madrid raid.

The U.S. and North Korea seem incapable of moving past the status quo, with neither side willing to concede to the other's demands of either complete denuclearization, complete sanctions relief, or some combination of the two. The two countries haven't spoken in years and appear no closer to a breakthrough despite several summits and other engagements from 2018 to 2019. To Simone Chun, a researcher in Northeast Asian political affairs, the U.S. is largely to blame for this stalemate and has perpetuated a hostile policy toward Pyongyang since before the Korean War and ever since. She joins the NK News Podcast to discuss why the Trump-Kim summits did not lead to lasting change, the legacies of U.S. imperialism on the peninsula, the momentum of the military-industrial complex, the cause-and-reaction cycle of U.S.-ROK “war games” and North Korean missile tests, why the shared culture, history and bonds the two Koreas have are the best hope for peace in the future, and more.

For nearly 70 years, a delicate ceasefire has prevailed between the two Koreas through cycle after cycle of tensions. But the Korean War Armistice Agreement was never meant to last so long, nor did its architects envision it would ever be so widely applicable across the land, air and sea domains. John Burzynski spent 20 years as an international relations advisor at U.N. Command (UNC), which oversees the armistice, and this week, he joins the NK News podcast for a deep dive into the agreement.  Burzynski explains what the U.S., China and North Korea believed the armistice would and wouldn't do when they signed it in July 1953, how the UNC has adapted to the evolving security situation since then, why the armistice has so little to say about the maritime border, why Pyongyang cannot unilaterally decide that the armistice no longer applies and more.

EXPERTS PIERRE HASKI Chroniqueur international – « France Inter » et « L'Obs » VALÉRIE NIQUET Spécialiste de l'Asie à la Fondation pour la recherche stratégique Auteure de « Taïwan face à la Chine » SYLVIE MATELLY Économiste - Directrice adjointe de l'IRIS Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques PHILIPPE DESSERTINE Directeur de l'Institut de Haute Finance Auteur de « Le grand basculement » Après deux ans et demi d'isolement, le leader chinois Xi Jinping a orchestré cette semaine son grand retour sur la scène diplomatique mondiale, enchaînant, au G20 à Bali puis à l'Apec à Bangkok, les entretiens avec les dirigeants des autres puissances. Ainsi jeudi à Bangkok, il a rencontré, pour la première fois en trois ans, le Premier ministre japonais et promis de travailler au réchauffement de la relation entre les deux pays, instable depuis des décennies. Plus tôt dans la semaine, dans le cadre du G20 de Bali, en Indonésie, il avait échangé pendant plus de trois heures avec le président américain, une première depuis l'entrée de Joe Biden à la Maison Blanche où il a notamment été question de la Corée du Nord. Puis, avec Emmanuel Macron qui a tenté de le convaincre d'intervenir auprès de Vladimir Poutine concernant la guerre en Ukraine. Au centre des regards, le président chinois a joué le dialogue avec les Occidentaux, tentant de restaurer la crédibilité de son régime, érodée par des politiques très agressives, et de rassurer les investisseurs. Car si Xi Jinping peut se targuer d'avoir réussi le pari de faire en dix ans de la Chine la deuxième économie mondiale, dotée d'une des armées les plus puissantes au monde, malgré une concentration presque totale des pouvoirs, il doit faire face à une économie en fort ralentissement, notamment en raison de sa politique « zéro Covid ». De plus en plus contestée dans son pays, cette stratégie a fait fuir les investissements étrangers. Et l'annonce des chiffres de la croissance du troisième trimestre, à 3,9 % – légèrement supérieure aux attentes des économistes –, n'a pas suffi à inverser la tendance. Car la Chine demeure aux prises d'une crise immobilière, secteur crucial pour le pays, ainsi qu'à des contrôles et confinements stricts qui ont largement freiné la propagation du Covid mais également paralysé l'activité des entreprises et les dépenses de consommateurs. A l'offensive diplomatiquement, le président chinois n'a toutefois pas fait de véritables concessions. Il a en outre confirmé que Taïwan est une question centrale pour l'Empire du Milieu. Ainsi lors de son entretient avec son homologue américain, Xi Jinping a déclaré lundi que le monde est suffisamment grand pour que leurs deux pays puissent prospérer et se concurrencer, tout en mettant en garde Washington contre le franchissement de la « ligne rouge » sur Taïwan. De son côté, Joe Biden a indiqué ne pas croire que la Chine envisage une invasion « imminente » de Taïwan. Mais dans l'île l'inquiétude gagne. Ils sont ainsi de plus en plus nombreux à redouter que l'agression russe donne des idées à Pékin et certains ont décidé de s'inspirer de la résistance ukrainienne. Le président américain s'est également dit « confiant » que la Chine « ne cherche pas une escalade » de la part de son allié la Corée du Nord, dont les tirs de missiles font craindre un essai nucléaire. Joe Biden a par ailleurs expliqué avoir demandé à son homologue chinois de signifier « clairement » à Pyongyang de ne pas mener d'essai nucléaire, faute de quoi Washington devrait prendre des mesures « défensives ».

*) Zelenskyy insists Poland missile attack wasn't by Ukraine Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy insists a missile that killed two people in Poland did not come from Ukrainian armed forces. Zelenskyy says a full-access investigation involving his officials should clarify what happened in Poland. He maintains a missile that crossed over into Poland did not come from Ukrainian armed forces. Earlier, Poland's President Andrej Duda said the missile strike appears to have been an accident, not an intentional attack. His comments were also echoed by the head of NATO. *) Republicans take control of lower chamber of Congress In the US, Republican lawmakers have taken control of the lower chamber of Congress, after winning the required 218 seats in the House of Representatives.

North Korea set a new record last week when it launched at least 23 missiles in one day, including a short-range projectile that splashed down into waters south of the inter-Korean maritime border, and also sent an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) careening toward Japan. Pyongyang's attempts to frame these escalations as purely defensive mechanisms against what it says are U.S. and South Korean preparations to invade. The allies have carried out a number of joint exercises in recent months, opting to publicize these drills to a much greater degree than in past years. Inter-Korean tensions are now arguably at their highest point since the “fire and fury” days of 2017, and there appear few offramps so long as DPRK leader Kim Jong Un refuses to engage in talks.  This week, the NK News team helps unpack these developments while discussing the last month on the Korean Peninsula — from South Korea's attempts to fish up one of the dozens of missiles North Korea fired into the ocean last week and recent cryptocurrency attacks linked to the notorious Lazarus Group to the latest debates about South Korean nuclearization and the utility of inter-Korean agreements.

The U.S. and South Korea jointly warned North Korea on Thursday that use of any kind of nuclear weapon against Seoul or other regional allies would result in the end of Kim Jong Un's regime, as Pyongyang continued to rattle the peninsula with escalating missile tests. North Korea has launched more than two dozen missiles over the last two days in response to U.S.-South Korean military exercises that began Monday. The launches have sent South Koreans scrambling for shelter and further frayed the nerves of a population already mourning the loss of more than 150 people at a horrific Halloween crowd crush. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and South Korean Defense Minister Lee Jong-sup, after meeting Thursday at the Pentagon, released a joint statement saying they “strongly condemned” North Korea's escalating military flexing, including ballistic missile test launches, multiple rocket launches and coastal artillery. In response to the launches, the U.S. extended the “Vigilant Storm” military exercise, which was scheduled to run through Friday, Nov. 4. Late Thursday the Pentagon announced the extension would now run through Saturday, depending on the security environment.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

President Joe Biden's special envoy for Iran, Robert Malley, has said Washington will no longer “waste its time” on the JCPOA talks. This puts the nail in the coffin of the already de facto dead negotiations. Saudi Arabia is claiming without evidence that Tehran is preparing an attack against the Kingdom, which has increased regional tensions. The Iranians will send a delegation to Vienna to have talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency aimed at resolving the uranium traces issue, and hopefully increasing cooperation and mutual understanding. Antiwar.com has a major scoop on how within the recently released Nuclear Posture Review, as well as the Pentagon's new National Defense Strategy, Biden's White House admits that Tehran is not seeking nuclear weapons and that there is no evidence they have made a decision to pursue a bomb. This week, Pyongyang carried out large-scale military exercises as Washington and Seoul conducted record-setting aerial war games, unleashing 23 missiles and over 100 artillery rounds before launching additional munitions on Thursday. Amid ever escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the State Department has demanded the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and declared that Washington will never accept Pyongyang as a nuclear weapons state. This comes as the State Department recently threatened Washington would nuke North Korea in defense of its allies. America's top military officer General Mark Milley praised SpaceX CEO Elon Musk by name at an event hosted by the Space Force, saying the ‘Chief Twit' exemplifies ”the civil and military cooperation and teamwork that makes the US the most powerful country in space.” SpaceX regularly contracts with the Pentagon and some allied militaries to launch satellites, and has notably aided the White House's proxy war in Ukraine.

While officially communist, North Korea's economy has been a strange hybrid of socialist and capitalist elements for decades now. Millions in the country rely on markets outside the state-planned economy for necessities and to make a living, and this has raised questions about how the DPRK could make the transition to a more capitalist economy — if it ever wanted to. This week, economist Halin Han joins the NK News podcast to discuss how the economic transitions of several Southeast Asian nations — Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam — could serve as a model for North Korea and what lessons Pyongyang could draw from their success and failures.  She also talks about why it was essential for Vietnam to establish relations with the U.S., the importance of overhauling the legal system to support capital growth and whether opening up the economy would be politically risky for the regime. Halin Han is a senior researcher at the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) and has conducted research on topics including the Greater Tumen Initiative, inter-Korean economic partnerships, DPRK fiscal policies and what can be learned from machine analysis of North Korean documents.

At the age of 6, Monique Macias fled political turmoil in Equatorial Guinea and found refuge in Pyongyang, becoming not only one of the few foreigners to grow up there but doing so under the guardianship of founding leader Kim Il Sung. This week, Macias joins the NK News podcast to talk about her unique upbringing and about identity, culture and acceptance in the notoriously monoethnic and homogenous society. She discusses her decision to study textiles and fashion at the personal suggestion of Kim Il Sung, why she remembers him as a father and not a politician, Confucian influence in both Koreas, the principles of non-intervention and more. Monique Macias spent more than 15 years in Pyongyang and has since lived and worked in South Korea, China, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S. Her biography, “I'm Monica from Pyongyang,” is available in Korean and will be published in English next year.

At the turn of the century, the markets were betting big on North Korea. The last holdout of the Cold War seemed to be on its last legs, and South Korea secured its first-ever summit in Pyongyang. Businessman Charles Thirlwall was part of the explosion of interest, representing a French company that probed business operations in the DPRK and visiting Pyongyang across a series of trips in the late 1990s and early 2000s.  This week, Thirwall joins the NK News podcast to discuss his experiences in a capital that he says was far more laid back about foreigners than today and why his firm in particular never got much going in the country.  He also talks about life in Pyongyang during the Arduous March famine, what it was like working in a textile factory, swimming across the DPRK-China border and rollerblading through Kim Il Sung Square.
