WASHINGTON (GaeaTimes.com) — In a recent visit to North Korea Gov. Bill Richardson, D-New Mexico was accompanied by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
Here is a glimpse of what he saw over there. Blister reported almost every details as to what he saw and learnt in his Korean trip.
Well, as it is the Korean Peninsula happens to be a tinderbox and so it should be noted that one miscalculation can quickly lead to all-out war and hundreds of thousands of military and civilian casualties on both sides.
Blitzer spoke his heart out in his report and stated that,
I believe this is the most dangerous spot on Earth right now.
He also added,
I think it’s fair to say we all had an eye-opening experience. It was a roller coaster of emotions — ranging from real fear of war on the Korean Peninsula to relief that the North had stepped back from the brink and even accepted some of Richardson’s proposals.
Maybe Richardson had played a positive role in calming down his hosts, including the chief nuclear negotiator, First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan; the new Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ri Yong Ho; the military officer in charge of the armistice and Demilitarized Zone, Major Gen. Pak Rim Su; and the country’s Vice President, Kim Yong Dae.
