Live-Interview for Russia Today Television


US President Barack Obama declared North Korea a threat to the US and South Korea and warned it to disarm or face isolation.

The stern words came as the South Korean president arrived in Washington to an unusually warm welcome. (...) Lee’s visit also comes as opposition has grown to South Korean plans to build a controversial naval base on Jeju Island. Given the close ties between Seoul and Washington, it is “very obvious” that the US navy will use this base, Rudiger Frank, an expert on North Korea and professor at the University of Vienna, told RT.

He explained that it might be used as a part of missile defense shield against long-range ballistic missiles which might come from North Korea or further up north. And it also should help the South Korean navy project its power in the region.
