North Korea launched a Taepodong-2 missile over the weekend. While North Korea claims the launch was aimed at putting a satellite in space, Washington, Tokyo, and Seoul speculate that Pyongyang's true intent was to test its long-range ballistic missile technology. North Korea has threatened that any attempt to intercept its rocket would be casus belli and grounds to leave the six-party talks. As North Korea's provocations test the resolve of the new U.S. administration and raise the stakes in six-party negotiations, the future stability of the region remains at stake. What is in store for U.S.-North Korean relations over the next four years? How will U.S. alliance relations with Japan and South Korea weather this current crisis? Can the six-party talks be saved? Are the talks worth saving? At this event, panelists will discuss these and other questions.
