Jeremy Corbyn identified North Korea as ‘not a rogue state’ and opposed sanctions

4 Jun

“The declaration of North Korea as some kind of threat is, in a sense, a pretext for stepping up economic and military pressure on that country.”

He went on: “I suspect this will be used as a way of helping to weaken, if not destroy, the North Korean economy in order to ultimately force some kind of integration between North and South Korea. Then we may see the spread of free market capitalism into North Korea.”

In the same book he wrote that the Soviet Union was “no real threat” and was resisted by Britain, the US and its allies because throughout history “the West has sought to politically attack socialist systems”.
