WASHINGTON - New North Korean leader Kim Jung-un looks unlikely to depart from the nuclear brinkmanship, threats to his region and repression of his father and grandfather, the top US military commander for the Asia-Pacific region said on Tuesday.

"He's a Kim, and he's surrounded by an uncle and Kim Jong-il's sister and others that I think are guiding his actions," said Admiral Robert Willard, head of US Pacific Command.

"So in that sense, we would expect ... more of the same. The strategy has been successful through two generations," he told a US Senate Armed services Committee hearing in Washington.
