North Korea and the Chinese Regime's 'Deep State'

North Korea and the Chinese Regime's 'Deep State'
- For years, leaders affiliated with former Communist Party boss Jiang Zemin had a stake in maintaining North Korea’s nuclear threat as a distraction from their own human rights abuses, as well as to tie the hands of their political rivals, according to an expert in Chinese affairs.

But such discussions must take into account the previous ties between China and North Korea, fostered by former leader Jiang.
