To the Editors of Global Asia:

I have been able to obtain a TOP SECRET memo from Kim Gye Gwan, the head of the North Korean delegation to the Six Party Talks, to North Korean leader Kim Jung Il. The memo is dated February 12, one day before the joint agreement on North Korea’s nuclear disarmament was
announced. I think the memo provides some insight into Pyongyang’s perception of the new agreement and long-term nuclear strategy.

Sincerely yours,
Gary Samore
