Dealing with North and South Korea: Can Washington Square the Circle?

Cato Institute

2075 Rayburn House Office Building

February 15, 2019, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un are preparing to reprise last year’s Singapore summit. Denuclearization has not proceeded as far as the administration hoped, but reconciliation between North and South is moving forward, leading to fears of a breach between Seoul and Washington. Indeed, with negotiations over host nation support for US forces stalemated, some South Koreans fear the president might follow through on his threats to withdraw American troops.

The panelists will assess the likely outcome of the summit, the role of the US-South Korean alliance, and discuss strategies to improve stability and promote disarmament. Join the Cato Institute for a conversation about this important issue and the prospects for peace on the Korean Peninsula.
