Korea's Multilateral Diplomacy: Challenges and Vision
Since the end of World War II, South Korea’s foreign policy has been largely shaped by security concerns triggered by North Korea and the interface among the powers surrounding the Korean Peninsula. Today, the growing nuclear threat posed by the Kim Jong-un regime has increased tensions on the Korean Peninsula. The near future outlook for peace and stability is far from certain. Ambassador Cho addressed these issues, and during an extended Q&A, opened the discussion to include, among others, the North Korean nuclear issue, the autocratic regime of Kim Jong-un, the future of the US-Korea alliance, the triangular relationship between the US, China and Korea, the deployment of THAAD, and Japan-Korea relations.
