The Asan Institute for Policy Studies
1211 Connecticut Avenue NW 8th Floor Washington, DC 20036
June 14, 2018, 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
The Asan Institute for Policy Studies will host an Asan Seminar titled “What Next? Future of the ROK-US Alliance and North Korea” on June 14, 2018, in Washington, DC. The much-anticipated meeting on June 12 between the US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could lead to a negotiated settlement of the North Korean nuclear issue. Will the two leaders come to an agreement that is acceptable for the region? If so, what are some challenges that lie ahead? If the talks fail, what might happen next? What do these developments mean for the future of the region and the ROK-US alliance? Experts from Seoul and Washington will share their analysis of the US-DPRK summit and present their outlook on the region and the alliance.
