ABSTRACT
The article discusses political and economic risk in North Korea. In August, independent reports claimed that North Korea is in the process of developing a new missile system for ships and submarines, a system that would allow it to target the entire American landmass. The sea-based system is thought to be capable of hitting a target more than 2500 km away. North Korea's poverty-stricken economy is desperately dependent on foreign aid. In August, Japan announced that it is to resume the delivery of food assistance to North Korea after a four-year pause.
