KJI Tracker: 2011

What’s one to do after a rough few days of sailing out on a yacht? Party it up in Russia, of course!

What’s the purpose? Reinitiating the 6-party talks, they say. However, that’s mainly a BeiJing initiative. So what’s really behind this visit? Is he trying to play China and Russia against each other in gaining both of their capital for investment in Korea? This is just a wild hunch of mine, so take it with a grain of salt.

UPDATE August 21, 2011:

Wonderful analysis on why KJI was in Russia, noting that North Korea’s official news sources mentioned his trip beforehand, which is very unusual. He was in Siberia, Amur Oblast, where he visited the Bureiskaya hydroelectric power plant and a nearby dam. One of the points mentioned was for Russian investment in North Korea, but in regards to the gas pipeline that will go to South Korea.

I wonder how the 3000 North Korean laborers in Vladivostok felt when their Dear Leader was in the same country as them?

Now, he’s back in North Korea, and has secured 50,000tons of flour. Hopefully, this flour will help out LINK‘s efforts to make bread for North Korean children.

    I wish more people would write sites like this that are actually fun to read. With all the garbage floating around on the web, it is a great change of pace to read a site like yours instead.
