North Korea has topped the list of countries the US citizens consider to be their main enemies. These are the results of a survey conducted by the American Institute of Public Opinion, also known as the Gallup Institute, reported the Russian BBC.
16% of those surveyed said North Korea is the main threat to their country. The reason for such a stance may be Pyongyang's statements about testing a hydrogen bomb.
According to the survey, 15% of respondents said Russia is the main enemy that is 3% less than in 2015. Two years ago, at the beginning of 2014, only 9% of respondents considered Russia as a serious threat.
The relations between Moscow and Washington cooled down following Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the start of the armed conflict in Ukraine in the spring of 2014.
The third place was taken by Iran, which had topped this list for five consecutive years. Americans changed their attitude to Iran against the background of the deal in 2015 relating to Tehran's nuclear program. However, in 2016 Iran once again has started raising their concerns.
The fourth place on the list of the main threats was taken by China.
Considered one of the most authoritative and influential sociological institutions in the United States, the Gallup Institute conducts such surveys annually.
