    Mark Fitzpatrick: Iran deal leaves N. Korea alone in rogue states club

    23 July 2015.  North Korea’s rejection of an Iran-style nuclear deal, as conveyed by a Foreign Ministry spokesman on July 21, came as no surprise. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is different from Iran, he said, and its nuclear weapons programme 'is not up for bargain'. The differences are indeed vast. Whereas Iran’s official policy is to reject nuclear weapons as haram (forbidden), North Korea’s nuclear-armed status is enshrined in its constitution and...

    Alexander Neill: Does China's 'tiger hunt' end with Zhou?

    12 June 2015.  By Alexander Neill, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Security On 11 June the First Intermediate People’s Court of Tianjin posted a five-paragraph statement on its website, revealing the sentencing of former politburo standing-committee member Zhou Yongkang to life imprisonment.
