Crisis on the Peninsula—Implications for the U.S.-Korea Alliance
06/19/2017 08:00 AM
@ Asia Society New York
725 Park Ave
New York, NY
BREAKFAST AVAILABLE FROM 8:00AM
DISCUSSION BEGINS AT 8:30AM
Soon after taking office, President Donald Trump reassured South Korea of the “ironclad commitment” of the U.S. to the alliance in the face of North Korean threats and provocations. Previous comments made by Mr. Trump — both on the campaign trail and after — had called into question core principles of the alliance, from long-standing U.S. military commitments to the support of regional free-trade agreements. President Trump’s reaffirmation of the decades-long friendship provided a measure of stability during a period of repeated threats from North Korea, and domestic political turmoil in the South. On May 9, 2017, South Korea will elect a new President and may begin discussion on possible changes to foreign policy. Meanwhile, North Korea appears on the brink of a profoundly upgraded missile capacity and the Trump administration has sent a US Navy strike group into nearby waters.
Join us for a special breakfast program featuring opening remarks by Ro-Myung Gong, followed by a panel discussion with Chung-in Moon, and Sue Mi Terry. What does the future hold for the U.S.-Korea alliance, the Korean Peninsula, and the security of Northeast Asia?
Ro-Myung Gong (opening remarks) is Chairman at the East Asia Foundation and Chair Professor of International Studies at Dongseo University. From 1994 to 1996, he served as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Korea.
Chung-in Moon is Distinguished Professor at Yonsei University, Seoul, and Editor-in-Chief of Global Asia. He served as the Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Northeast Asian Cooperation Initiative, a cabinet-level post, and as South Korea's Ambassador for International Security Affairs.
Sue Mi Terry is Managing Director at Bower Group Asia. Previously she served as Senior Research Scholar at Columbia University's Weatherhead East Asian Institute and National Intelligence Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
