A senior adviser at the U.S.-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, Victor Cha, has published an op-ed in the Washington Post, saying diplomacy is the only way to reduce the threat of conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
Cha noted the North's latest missile launches, and said that while its normal to impose more sanctions on the North for its provocations, the only sensible way forward is communication.
Cha noted that humanitarian assistance, under the appropriate verification protocols, would not violate the current sanctions as laid out by UN Security Council resolutions.
He said the provision of such aid could provide some room to maneuver on the diplomatic front.
