Since the Hanoi summit between the DPRK and the U.S. ended without result, concerns have been raised that the deadlock between the two countries will be prolonged.
How can we ensure that the peace process on the Korean Peninsula is firmly sustained? How can we end the Korean War and build the stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula? How can we achieve Nuclear-Free Korean Peninsula which can become a stepping stone for Northeast Asia Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone?
Speakers will address analysis and views on the current situation on the Korean Peninsula (Relations between the DPRK and the U.S.; Negotiations to build peace regime on the Korean Peninsula; Sanctions against the DPRK; Inter-Korean exchange and cooperation and so on), suggestions for making peaceful Korea and Northeast Asia, and the role of social movements.
After the presentation, there will be a Q&A session and discussion with the audience.
