Landmine Removal Begins on the Korean Peninsula

October 3, 2018

Episode Notes:

On Monday, both Koreas began the removal process of all landmines in the Joint Security Area (JSA) of the DMZ. This process delivers on the agreement reached back on September 19th between Kim and Moon, which called for the nimble removal of mines, posts, and weapons in the JSA. How is this different from before? Toby Dalton, Co-Director of the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, talks about what makes this different.
