North/South Korea conflict

2010-12-08

Queen’s University’s international security and nuclear weapons expert Anthony Seaboyer is available to discuss today’s military attack between North and South Korea.

“As North Korea has attacked a densely populated area for the first time since 1953, this is the most serious crisis escalation between the two countries in the past decades. While the potential for an outbreak of war exists, it is not likely as both sides have no interest in a further escalation. Unfortunately, we have no experience with future North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that could help anticipate how he may react,” says Dr. Seaboyer, who is the Head of the Proliferation and Security Research Unit at the Queen's Centre for International Relations.
