YEKATERINBURG, April 11 (Itar-Tass) - The scale of North Korea’s nuclear threat seems to be exaggerated, according to Russian nuclear scientist Borsi Goshchitsky.
It might be a “mere bluff,” he said in an interview with Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“It is beyond my comprehension - how come that North Korea has so many nuclear warheads to be able to threaten the world,” Goshchitsky, a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the chairman of the Academy’s academic council on solid body radiation physics, said. “I have been working in this area for years - neither we (Russia) nor other states have sold them (North Korea) anything, which is only natural because of its aggressiveness.”
Whereas nuclear technologies are no secret nowadays, many countries lack economic capabilities to create a nuclear shield, he noted.
Another fact that testifies to the “bluff tactics,” according to Goshchitsky, is that despite Pyongyang’s warnings foreign diplomats and citizens are in no hurry to leave the country.
Boris Goshchitsky is a co-founded of the nuclear research centre in the Urals.
