Quoted: CNN on North Korea's Re-Designation As A State Sponsor of Terrorism



But according to Mintaro Oba -- a former Korea desk officer at the State Department -- relisting North Korea may not yield significant progress in the administration's pressure campaign.
"Re-designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism doesn't add much to our efforts to pressure North Korea, but it is an action with symbolic value that will make it harder to get on a path toward denuclearization," Oba told CNN. "It will be seen in Pyongyang as confirming the United States is not serious about negotiations."
