The June 12 summit in Singapore between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un marked a high point in U.S.-North Korea relations. But in recent months, diplomatic progress has stalled, and confusion abounds about what exactly had been agreed to and whether peace in the Korean Peninsula is in peril once again.

What are the prospects for diplomacy that could lead to a breakthrough? Will North Korea accept a defined path towards denuclearization? What are the common grounds whereby the United States and North Korea can build trust and avoid catastrophic miscalculations that could lead to war? From the Pacific Northwest to Washington, DC, what is the impact on Americans and our allies in East Asia if diplomacy fails?

To help us answer these questions, The D.C.-based Council on Korean Americans (CKA) is organizing a free, public event in partnership with the Korea Foundation and the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at University of Washington. Lunch will be provided.

Please join Executive Director and COO Ploughshares Fund Philip Yun, Jackson School Professor Yong-Chool Ha, and Interim Director CKA Jessica Lee in exploring this fast-changing political landscape between the United States and North Korea and what is at stake for global peace and security.
