Sorensen says tension escalation with North Korea is disturbing | Komo News Radio

April 17, 2017

Korea specialist and Chair of the Korea Studies Program Professor Clark Sorensen discusses the rising tension between the U.S. and North Korea in an interview with KOMO News Radio.

North Korea recently made a ballistic missile-test which increased tension with its neighbor and U.S. ally South Korea.

The United States announced in response that it is advancing a Navy strike group toward the western Pacific – a force U.S. President Donald Trump described as an “armada.”

Professor Sorensen says that a North Korean provocation was indeed expected but the recent rhetoric indicates the rise in tension.
