“The current state of US-Russian relations is depressive and stimulating. Depressing because there’s so little optimism in the expert community, and there’s so much concern that we are heading in the direction that neither of us really seems to want but neither of us can avoid. And that direction seems to be bringing us to the potential for conflict... That generates the commitment, which was the positive side of the discussion. We had a very pragmatic discussion. There was relatively little posturing, and there was a lot of serious direct constructive exploration of our differences,” — Dr. Brad Roberts, Director of Center for Global Security Research, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Today they DPRK has a nuclear arsenal. In my judgment, they are not going to give up their nuclear arsenal. Diplomacy is no longer able to solve that problem and that’s the problem we have to deal with today. Therefore, U.S, Russia, China, Japan and South Korea have to being able to contain and deter the arsenal they have. It is not primarily a diplomatic issue, but a military issue. Secondly, we need diplomacy to try to lower that danger”,  Former Secretary of Defense (1994 – 1997) William Perry.
