WASHINGTON, July 16 (Reuters) – U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday that North Korea’s famine has reduced the threat posed by its armed forces.

“This is an army that’s starving,” Gates said at a town hall meeting with soldiers at the U.S. Army’s Fort Drum in upstate New York.

“The famine of the mid-1990s has affected the physical and even intellectual development of those that are now coming into the zone who would be eligible for military service,” he added.
