Young Leaders Program Singapore (YLPSG) Meetup Session: Where do things stand with North Korea?





October 16, 2015

What is to be made of the increased activity around the Yongbyon nuclear site? How well is North Korea deterred in light of Pyongyang hinting that it could launch long-range missiles to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Workers Party? How would the region deal with a collapse of North Korea? David Santoro and John Warden joined the Singapore chapter of the Pacific Forum Young Leaders program to discuss these issues and broader concerns related to the Korean Peninsula.
