How to cope with North Korea: what can Japan and U.K. do?
2 October 2017, London
In this talk, Professor Hitoshi Tanaka, Dr Jim Hoare and Dr Laura Richardson discuss nuclear and missile development in North Korea, which continues to be aggressively pursued despite sanctions from the United Nations Security Council. While military confrontation must be avoided, the relationship between the U.S. and North Korea makes this particularly difficult. What are the essential elements for diplomatic solution, if any? Would diplomacy succeed?
In this talk, Professor Tanaka will give a brief history of the North Korea nuclear issue, discussing why North Korea is determined to acquire nuclear weapons and why this programme continued despite sanctions from UNSC. Dr Hoare will discuss how the U.K might be functional in improving the situation. Dr Richardson, a specialist in regional studies, will take a third-party view and consider Korea-Japan relations from a broader perspective.
