Guam - Koreans on Guam are hoping that some good will come from the recent news of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Il's death. While his death raises the possibility of increased instability between North Korea and South Korea, Sang Rok Oh said the association on Guam is hoping Il's death will open new opportunities for the two countries to unify as one.
Andrew Park has his doubts about the young successor, Kim Jong Un, who is only 27 years old, but he believes it could mean an end to nuclear weapons. "I don't like it anytime I like peaceful life and I like my homeland be peaceful without nuclear weapons," he said. "I hope the death of Kim Jung Il will bring positive changes in North Korea, , I don't see the unification of south and north will come very soon, but I hope his death will give very positive impact to the unification."
South Korea has already put its military on high alert and has increased surveillance activity.
