The release of two Americans who had been held by the North Koreans for some time raises the question of whether we may hope for some easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula and a renewal of long-stalled talks on Pyongyang's denuclearization.
The NCAFP's Forum on Asia-Pacific Security (FAPS) hosted a public panel discussion on the future of the Korean Peninsula, featuring:
Professor Kim Sung-han, Professor of International Relations, Korea University; former Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs
Mr. Evans J.R. Revere, Senior Adviser, Albright Stonebridge Group; former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State
Dr. Stephen E. Noerper, Senior Vice President, The Korea Society
