The ultimate goal for North Korea is to become a nuclear weapons state, claims a former North Korean diplomat. Thae Yong-ho a former London-based North Korean diplomat expressed doubts over the possibility of a complete denuclearization of North Korea.

While addressing a press conference, Thae said, "It is too early to predict, but I think the North will move toward sufficient, verifiable, irreversible dismantling, which is to sufficiently reduce threats from nuclear weapons, rather than seek complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement, He further claimed that North Korea wishes to become a nuclear weapons state under the shield of officially being recognised as a denuclearised state.
