Kim Jong Un is one of the few prominent world leaders yet to congratulate Joe Biden for winning the presidency of the United States. Chinese president Jinping was also quiet upon Biden’s victory but broke the silence on Wednesday when he congratulated Biden.
However hard they tried, the previous regimes couldn’t sway the attitude of North Korea towards the United States. Under both Barak Obama and Donald Trump, North Korea continued to threaten the US Homeland with nuclear weapons.
“Regardless of the US presidency, the North Korean regime is unlikely to change its behavior. Or even shift its strategy toward the US”. Said Soo Kim, a policy analyst who worked at the CIA.
“The nukes are here to stay. Kim will continue to build missiles and the strategy has proven to work for decades. So, why change what works?’’
What the DPRK is likely to do;
In 2009, just months after Obama took over the presidency, North Korea tested him with the launch of a long-range rocket and nuclear device. Similarly, North Korea also tested Trump with a series of ballistic missile lunches. They culminated with the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile that experts believe could reach the entire US.
Kim will likely give some clues on how he is to approach the new Biden Administration during an annual New Year’s address. However, tensions might end up escalating if Joe Biden chooses to respond with a show of military might.
