Global Conversations DIGITAL: The Two Koreas
September 22 @ 6:00 pm CDT/ Free
The Korean Peninsula is facing a defining era. Attempts by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and former U.S. President Donald Trump to repair the rift between North and South lost momentum as Pyongyang continued to test long-range missiles for its nuclear weapons program. As the rift between the U.S. and China grows further, South Korea may end up in the middle of the two superpowers.
Join speaker Dr. Raymond Kuo, Political Scientist with the RAND Corporation, and expert in international security and East Asia, as he discusses what the future holds for U.S.-Korea relations.
