    I once read that Korean re-unification would cost ten times more than German re-unification because the north is so wanting and in need of even basic infrastructure and everyone is basically half-starved. So, no. Re-unification is not just around the corner. I wish them well though.


    And what does the Lord require of you but to love justice, to be merciful and to walk humbly with Him?

    I don't believe there is the slightest chance of reunification at the present time.
    The priority of the North Korean elite is regime survival. They hope to achieve this aim by continuing with internal repression and developing even more sophisticated weapons as they fear an external attack. They already have a huge army altho' there are some doubts about its morale.
    During the talks the main aim of the North will be to secure aid for its crumbling economy without making any concessions that might weaken its hold on power.
    I'm certain North and South Korea will only unite after the regime, in the North has been overthrown.
