Please join us for an AsiaConnect briefing call with Ambassador Joseph Yun, Special Representative for North Korea Policy at the U.S. State Department and former Ambassador to Malaysia. Ambassador Yun will discuss the current state of affairs on the Korean Peninsula. He accompanied U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken during his recent visit to South Korea, Japan, and China.

The call will explore the international community’s efforts to maintain peace and stability in the region while holding North Korea accountable for its most recent nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches. What practical measures are the U.S., South Korea, Japan, and China taking to exert pressure on the North Korean regime? How are sanctions being applied? What other tools are being used to promote stability and cooperation in the region? In addition to these questions of security on the Korean peninsula, the briefing will also address cyber and maritime security challenges.
