Abstract of the Speech
After the historic US-DPRK summit, both Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) may confront new challenges for their national security. Although the US-DPRK joint statement does not specifically refer to the CVID (Complete, Verifiable, Irreversible, Dismantlement) of DPRK's nuclear arsenal, President Trump announced, without prior consultation with South Korea, that the US-ROK joint military exercise would be suspended.
Our guest speakers are Ambassador Tae-Yong Cho, South Korea's distinguished former career diplomat, and Dr. Junya Nishino, professor of Keio University. They are kindly requested to talk about the future of Northeast Asia's security challenges after the US-DPRK summit meeting on June 12 in Singapore.
