N. Korea Rocket Shows Kim Following His Father, Ewha’s Park Says

Park Joon Young, professor of international relations at Ewha Womans University in Seoul, comments by phone on North Korea’s rocket launch today. The launch comes as South Korea prepares for a presidential election on Dec. 19.

“It’s not a surprise. It shows North Korea’s leader is developing nuclear weapons and missiles regardless of international pressure.

‘‘It was inevitable for him to assert North Korea’s sovereign security. Kim, as a new leader, is flagging that he will continue on the same course as his late father.

‘‘At this time, I don’t think the launch will have a huge impact on results of our election. I think the timing was just a coincidence.

‘‘The U.S. is joining forces with other neighboring countries to block the North’s development of nuclear weapons. But so far, these collaborated efforts don’t look as though they’re working properly.”
