Re: Air Koryo speculations

If let's say sanctions are lifted and they make plane deals with both Airbus and Boeing - there's still no guarantee that these planes will actually be delivered. 1. Trump and NK didn't come to an agreement yet - and US is always looking for appeasement. I don't see NK bowing for US that easily. 2. ...
