Peace and Prosperity Ep.37
▶ Defense cost-sharing issues fuel concerns over S. Korea-U.S. alliance

South Korea-U.S. talks on the cost-sharing of U.S. troops on the Korean Peninsula have hit an impasse over the Trump administration’s demand for a fivefold increase in Seoul’s contribution for next year. U.S. President Donald Trump’s excessive demand has raised concerns at home, with The New York Times calling it a “lose-lose proposition” and The Washington Post an “insult” that the South Korean government “could never politically accept.” The U.S. Congress also weighed in, lauding South Korea’s financial contributions to the alliance.
To break down the latest developments, we are joined by Kim Hyun-wook, Professor at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy. To broaden the perspective, we also connect with guest experts on Skype, including Harry J. Kazianis, Senior Director for Korea studies at the Center for the National Interest, and Owen Miller, Professor at SOAS University of London.
