Korean Conflict

THOMAS P. KIM
Kim is executive director of the Korea Policy Institute and professor of politics and international relations at Scripps College.

JOHN FEFFER
Co-director of Foreign Policy In Focus, Feffer is author of The Future of U.S.-Korean Relations. He said today: “Applying sanctions against North Korea and conducting military exercises near its border have not led to a change in North Korean behavior or progress toward denuclearizing the Korean peninsula. Instead, North Korea has unveiled its uranium enrichment facility and artillery fire has broken out near the disputed maritime boundary between north and south. As the two Koreas step up their conflict, it is vital for the United States to work with its allies as well as China and Russia to restart negotiations in northeast Asia.”
