Van Jackson Talks Nuclear Tensions on the Korean Peninsula

November 7, 2017

Our very own Van Jackson drops knowledge about maximum pressure (dangerous), whether de-nuclearization on the Korean peninsula is possible (it’s not), and why the United States needs military-to-military relations with North Korea.

The event was hosted by the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs (Wellington Branch) and and Embassy of the Republic of Korea. Van’s remarks start at 29:45. The other speakers are Yoon Young-kwan of Seoul National University and Ben King, New Zealand’s Deputy Secretary of Foreign Affairs.
