A friend's departure

Kim Jong-il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), died on the morning of Dec 17 at the age of 69, leaving his country a heritage that has profound strategic implications.


Time for due consideration

Given the DPRK's traditional filial piety and political authoritarianism the leadership transition should be stable and orderly. Besides, those who are able to influence the political situation are all beneficiaries of the existing system. Therefore, there is little likelihood of any unexpected political initiatives or activities that might jeopardize Kim Jong-un taking hold of the reins of power.
