Dr Cathcart was on the Big Yorkshire Phone In to provide context and analysis to a discussion on North Korea's nuclear missile test. He said the UK could have a role to play in reducing tensions - by reining in the rhetoric on the side of the US and playing a role in UN Security Council deliberations.
Dr Cathcart provides analysis of North Korea's nuclear strategy, arguing that "Kim Jong-un and his family have, in effect, been at war with the United States in Asia since North Korea’s founding in 1948."
