Iran’s English language broadcaster Press TV yesterday devoted a ten-minute News Review segment to the announcement by U.S. and South Korean authorities of plans to hold joint exercises of nuclear-capable forces in a show of strength meant as their response to the latest ICBM and shorter range missiles by Pyongyang. Meanwhile, a tight-knit alliance between the United States, Japan and South Korea to counter North Korea seems to be in the making.
I had the pleasure to join Press TV’s correspondent in Seoul, Frank Smith, in a brief analysis of these developments. You will note how the anchorman in Teheran pitched questions to each of us which played to our complementary strengths: in-depth knowledge of South Korean politics on the one hand, and, on the other hand, knowledge of the global context for the emerging developments on the Korean peninsula.
