At the forthcoming US-North Korea summit, US President Donald Trump will aim to get North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to ‘completely, verifiably, and irreversibly’ abandon the country’s nuclear weapons. However, some experts believe that the US president has misread Kim’s willingness to denuclearize, and that he instead seeks to preserve North Korea’s core nuclear weapons capability, portray the country as a ‘responsible’ nuclear weapons state, and convince the United States to remove sanctions against it. At this event, the speaker will share his views on whether the summit will put North Korea on the road to denuclearization or whether it will result in yet another agreement that leads to disappointment, recrimination, and possible conflict.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
