Japan's Security and Foreign Policy Challenge on the Korean PeninsulaVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Lecture with Dr. Junya Nishino
Asia Society Switzerland and Europa Institut Zurich invite you to a lecture with Dr. Junya Nishino of Keio University.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in the US-DPRK Joint Statement on June 12 in Singapore. But North Korea has not yet stopped producing nuclear materials or nuclear warheads, nor has it disposed of nuclear materials or nuclear warheads produced in the past. Above all, it is necessary to immediately take actions for denuclearization against North Korea's nuclear developments. Otherwise, it would be difficult to judge that the Japanese security environment has improved. This presentation will assess the current security environment on the Korean peninsula and Japan’s efforts in dealing with North Korea.
Attendance is free. No registration required. Limited seats available.
The event is kindly supported by the Japanese Embassy in Switzerland.
