Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has named North Korea “an imminent threat” during his inaugural trip to East Asia. As Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping prepare for their first summit since Trump took office, how to facilitate effective cooperation between the U.S. and China to deal with the escalating danger of North Korea will be a key priority for the two leaders. The Stimson Center and The Asan Institute for Policy Studies co-hosted an on-the-record discussion examining the challenge posed by North Korea. The expert panel explored recent nuclear developments as well as assessed policy options the U.S., China, South Korea, and Japan can pursue to address the threat.
