North Korea-Iran: Lessons From Diplomacy with Iran in Addressing North Korea

The Council of Korean Americans and the AJC Asia Pacific Institute

165 East 56 Street, New York, NY

June 20, 2017, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm


In July 2015, the UN Security Council's five permanent members plus Germany adopted the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in an effort to block Iran's path to nuclear weapons. Today, the world is closely following the dramatic and overt buildup of North Korea's nuclear weapons program. Mindful of the potential parallels and contrasts between the two nations' quests for nuclear weapons, experts Suzanne DiMaggio, Director and Senior Fellow at New America and Dr. Katharine Moon, Nonresident Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution, will discuss lessons from Iran and North Korea -- if any -- that can applied to today. The discussion will be moderated by AJC Asia Pacific Institute Director Shira Loewenberg, with remarks by Council of Korean Americans Executive Director Sam Yoon.

There is no cost to attend this event but registration is required and space is limited.  For more information, please contact Samantha Flick at 212-891-6774 or email  [email protected].

 Please RSVP here before June 12th.
