Kim Feared North Korea May Become Like Iraq

Monday, 09 November 2009 10:57 PM


Japanese state-run broadcaster NHK reports that when Kim Jong-il met with then Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi in Pyongyang in 2002 the North Korean leader said he was afraid his country would become like Iraq.

Kim is also believed to have said he cannot surrender the country's nuclear activities for the sake of the regime's survival.

The new revelations surfaced after NHK claimed it had obtained a highly classified document detailing the exchange between Koizumi and Kim.
