    N. Korean diplomat's disappearance in Italy

    CIA declines to comment on N. Korean diplomat's disappearance in Italy
    Updated: 2019-01-06

    In the United States, the CIA has declined to comment on the disappearance of a North Korean diplomat in Italy who many believe is trying to defect.

    North Korea's former acting ambassador to Rome, Jo Song-gil, has been missing since November.

    Speaking to reporters on Saturday, a CIA spokesperson said the agency will not speak on the matter because it's the State Department that is generally in charge of handling issues related to asylum seekers.

    There's been conflicting reports on the whereabouts of Jo.
    Some reports have claimed that Jo is under the protection of the Italian government and wants to seek asylum in the U.S.

    The Italian government said last week, though, that Jo has not asked for asylum.

    Other reports speculate that Jo has either made it to the U.S. or the UK already or that he's been caught by North Korea and taken back to Pyeongyang.

    Seems that peace in the Korean Peninsula really is something that can not be allowed to happen.

    I suspect a referendum in each country is out of the question then.
