The complete denuclearization of the DPRK is unlikely to happen in the next two yearsbecause its progress depends on the fulfillment of obligations not only by Pyongyang, but also by Washington – this is the opinion of the first deputy chairman of the Duma’s committee on international affairsDmitry Novikov.
“It must be recalled that the bilateral summit that had just passed in Hanoi did not end with anything, and there are reasons for this: in Pyongyang they are not ready for unilateral disarmament without any conditions. This is understandable: they have created their defensive power, they have defended their borders from a possible external impact not for unilateral disarmament now”said MP Novikov.
He noted that the DPRK will go to complete denuclearization, if the United States will fulfill its obligations.
“It’s still not such a long time (2021) to implement the measures that are supposed to be taken, they take time, and there are things that cannot be resolved inone night” Dmitry Novikov said.
