PacNet #35A – Achieving a New Structure of Peace on the Korean Peninsula

Editor’s Note:  In April 2007, a distinguished bipartisan working group of U.S. policy experts, former military officials, and retired diplomats, organized by the Atlantic Council of the United States, issued a report and recommendations on achieving a “comprehensive settlement” in Korea.  Entitled “A Framework for Peace and Security in Korea and Northeast Asia,” the report’s recommendations on “peace arrangements” for the Korean Peninsula seem particularly timely in light of the impending North-South summit and recent progress in the Six-Party Talks.
