    This article is very well structured and sourced and I agree that the primary reason for installing a second internet connection for NK will be to increase resilience against external cyber attack. However I would question the emphasis on it’s use in NK-sponsored or coordinated attacks.

    As you say, the NK regime generally uses actors outside of the country, and a second connection is unlikely to change that. I would like to see some discussion of the regime’s Byungjin policy of economic development. I would argue that this connection is more likely to be intended to support this, and to forge closer ties with Russia.

      Thanks, Jim. Are you in a position to go into the story via the “edit button” and suggest edits in ALL CAPS or BOLD? Happy to talk you through it. Otherwise, can take feedback on here. Just thought might be faster since sounds like you have it in your head!

        Thanks Cassandra, that’s my ignorance of how the edit system is meant to work. I’ll give it a try
