DPRK tensions

The DPRK has fired a ballistic missile into the sea east of the Korean Peninsula, despite the recent announcement from the US that it will impose new sanctions on the country. The missile launch is seen as a response to joint military drills by South Korea and the US. Why have sanctions so far been so ineffective? The DPRK seems to have been shaken by the joint military exercises, does its focus on this issue signal a potential willingness to discuss nuclear tensions? And how should South Korea navigate its relationships with the US and China? Join us for a discussion with Mr. Yang Xiyu, Senior Fellow from the China Institute of International Studies; and via satellite, Mr. Chung Min Lee, non-resident Senior Associate of Carnegie’s Asia Program, and professor of international relations at Yonsei University; and Ms. Sharon Squassoni, Director and Senior Fellow of the Proliferation Prevention Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
