The eldest son of the recently deceased dictator Kim Jong-il thinks that the North Korean regime will soon collapse, according to a book to be published later this week.
Kim Jong-nam, who was once thought to be his father's preferred successor as leader of the Communist state, also criticises the rule of his half-brother, Kim Jong-un, calling him a "nominal figure".
The book, which will be eagerly scrutinised by North Korea watchers starved of reliable information about the regime's inner circle in Pyongyang, is written by a Japanese journalist Yoji Gomi who says he carried out a lengthy email exchange with Kim Jong-nam over a period of several years. Its publication comes just a month after the death of Kim Jong-il, who had ruled the secretive country since 1994.
