Dear China Brief Readers,
The Jamestown Foundation is proud to present The North Korea Review, a special supplement to China Brief. Focusing on the escalating crisis on the Korean Peninsula, the Review takes an insider’s view of challenges facing this week’s multilateral talks in Beijing and explores the highly secretive regime in Pyongyang through the eyes of a high-level North Korean defector. The Review also takes a hard look at North Korean drug trafficking and Kim Jong Il’s relations with Russia. We hope you enjoy this special issue!
