Global Conversations ST. PAUL: Nuclear Negotiations – Back to the Future?
November 13 @ 12:00 pm CST/ Free
Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them. The President has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021, the first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, and President Trump has decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran.
Join us for a conversation with Raymond Kuo, Executive Director of the Midwest International Policy Institute, on the future of U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations and whether the “art of the deal” can be used to stabilize our nuclear future.
