World Ch. Schedule : MON 07:30 KST

The third inter-Korean summit between the two leaders of Korea has come to an end. One of the big goals of the meeting was easing military tensions and increasing exchanges between the two Koreas, but the main goal was to achieve progress in denuclearization talks between the U.S. and DPRK.
On this week's [The Point: World Affairs], we analyze how the agreements made in the Pyeongyang summit can affect North Korea's relations with the U.S. and what President Moon can do to continue the momentum for the stalled denuclearization talks. For that, we sit down with Research Fellow James Kim from the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.
We also connect with Bruce Bennett, the senior international/ defense researcher at the RAND Corporation and Ralph Cossa, the former president at the Pacific Forum to assess U.S. sentiment for the summit in Pyeongyang and the prospects for a second U.S.-DPRK meeting.
