"Let's meet again in Pyeongyang this fall," promised the leaders of the two Koreas after their historic summit on Apr. 27 in Panmunjom. They delivered on their promise as they sat down for the third inter-Korean summit of the year. Expectations were high that the meeting would give a much-needed momentum to stalled denuclearization talks between North Korea and the U.S. On Arirang Special "Peace and Prosperity," we are joined by Lee Seong-hyon, Research Fellow at the Sejong Institute, and Choo Jae-woo, Professor of Political Science and Diplomacy at Kyung Hee University, in the studio to assess the outcome of the Pyeongyang summit, including the joint declaration and a roadmap towards denuclearization the two leaders produced. To broaden the perspective and gauge reactions of regional powers, we connect with seven experts from the U.S., China and Japan, including former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill and Robert King, former special envoy for North Korea human rights issues at the U.S. State Department.
