Omaha, NE – A Creighton University political scientist believes the death of Kim Jong-Il is an opportunity for the U.S. to build positive relations with North Korea.
The former North Korean leader died Saturday. His son, Kim Jong-Un, is believed to be the successor.
Maorong Jiang, Director of Creighton's Asian World Center, says Kim Jong-Un will bring a new, younger perspective to North Korea. He says that could help open the nation up to the rest of the world.
