La Cia creerà un centro in Corea del Sud per contrastare la minaccia di Pyongyang. Lo ha comunicato in una nota la stessa Agenzia di intelligence statunitense. “La creazione del Corea Mission Center ci permette di integrare maggiormente gli sforzi contro le gravi minacce agli Stati Uniti e ai suoi alleati provenienti dalla Corea del Nord”, ha dichiarato il direttore della Cia, Mike Pompeo. Che all’inizio del mese era stato a Seul per analizzare il dossier.

The CIA has launched a new Korea Mission Center to counter nuclear and ballistic missile threats posed by Pyongyang, the agency announced in a statement on Wednesday. “The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has established a Korea Mission Center to harness the full resources, capabilities, and authorities of the Agency in addressing the nuclear and ballistic missile threat posed by North Korea,” the statement said. The CIA has appointed a veteran operations officer to serve as assistant director for Korea and oversee the operations at the new mission center, the statement said. “Creating the Korea Mission Center allows us to more purposefully integrate and direct CIA efforts against the serious threats to the United States and its allies emanating from North Korea,” CIA Director Mike Pompeo said, according to the statement. Pompeo made an unannounced visit to South Korea earlier this month for talks on the Pyongyang threat. The situation on the Korean peninsula has escalated in recent months as North Korea carried out a number of missile launches and nuclear tests.
