Ideas to ensure successful nuclear talks between Pyeongyang and Washington are being discussed in the media. While the U.S. has maintained there would be no sanctions relief until complete denuclearization, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently highlighted the need to provide security assurances to the North. Meanwhile, former acting CIA Director Michael Morell proposed a partial lifting of sanctions in return for North Korea’s nuclear freeze, including the resumption of the inter-Korean Kaeseong Industrial Complex. We are joined by Professor Kim Hyun-wook from the Korea National Diplomatic Academy to explore these developments. We also connect with Bruce Klingner, Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, to discuss the strategy Washington needs to employ in its future dialogue with Pyeongyang.
