Perhaps this is all a cunning scheme to force the North Korean leaders to abandon their nuclear ambitions purely by high intensity irony. I don't see how it could work though — they seem to be immune.

Let's see, a North Korean has taken over from a British diplomat. So a country which has a small nuclear arsenal has taken over from a country with a large nuclear arsenal and host to US military bases. A country whose belligerence is limited to a couple of skirmishes with its neighbour has taken over from a country which is currently bombing Libya and taking part in aggressive operations in Afghanistan, and in recent years has attacked Iraq, Serbia and, if you go back a little further, plenty more.

It seems to me the Conference on Disarmament is under rather more appropriate stewardship now.
