The North Korean nuclear issue continues to be overshadowed by international and regional events this year despite the increase in missile testing and reported preparations for a seventh nuclear test. The world remains focused on the war in Ukraine and its implications beyond Europe, further heightening US-China tensions and geostrategic competition. In Seoul, a new conservative administration has taken office, promising a more global US-ROK alliance and ‘peace through strength.’ In this evolving security environment, what are the prospects for diplomacy with the DPRK on the nuclear issue?
Please join our experts from the US, China, and the ROK as they assess current developments in North Korea and how to incentivize Pyongyang to return to the negotiating table.
