A prominent North Korean official has defected to South Korea, and he’s brought a warning for the United States.
Thae Yong-ho, formerly the second-in-command at North Korea’s London embassy, has sought asylum in South Korea, making him one of the most prominent defectors to ever publicly flee Kim Jong-un’s regime. Yong-ho participated in nearly two and a half hours of questioning from South Korean journalists upon his arrival. Although foreign journalists were not permitted to attend, a written transcript was released for media use.
