Speaking on CBS This Morning, Carnegie’s Jake Sullivan discussed the risks of a military conflict with North Korea and warned not to overlook the likelihood ofconflict with Iran. Increased tensions between the United States and Iran over the last couple days, along with U.S. President Donald Trump’s calls to end the Iran Nuclear Deal, could put Iran on the same path as North Korea as an imminent threat potentially needing military consideration. He also looked at the role for China in negotiating the suspension of North Korea’s nuclear program and the incentives China could offer Pyongyang to end the conflict. Sullivan concluded that China ca take on the role of paying monetary payments to North Korea, previously taken upon by the US, in order to reduce tensions and risks of war.
