A former money man for the Kim regime suggests the North Korean economy is on the ropes.
“I don’t know if North Korea will survive a year [under] sanctions. Many people will die,” Ri Jong Ho, a former official in charge of securing funds for the regime, revealed at his first public speaking event in the U.S. at the Asia Society in New York, according to CNBC.
“There is not enough to eat there” and the sanctions have “completely blocked” trade, he asserted.
The U, at the urging of the U.S. and in response to North Korea’s test of an intercontinental ballistic missile and a staged thermonuclear bomb, has imposed strict sanctions on the rogue regime, cutting off 90 percent of its exports, restricting key imports, and shutting down illicit trading and smuggling networks. The U.S. has also imposed unilateral sanctions to increase the pressure on North Korea and its supporters. – READ MORE[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/17/north-korea-may-not-last-a-year-under-sanctions-says-former-regime-official/” target=”_blank”]
