Despite the efforts of several South Korean administrations in recent decades, the two Koreas have been unable to make lasting progress towards reconciliation. While many factors influence inter-Korean diplomacy, one of the most significant outside of the peninsula is the view from the United States. Washington’s approach towards North Korea between and even within administrations has varied widely, often affecting Seoul’s attempts to reach a diplomatic breakthrough with Pyongyang.
As South Korean President Moon Jae-in prepares to leave office, please join KEI and emerging North Korea expert Gabriela Bernal for a discussion covering under what conditions Washington has facilitated or slowed Seoul’s initiatives towards Pyongyang in the past and what this suggests for ultimately reaching the successful long-term reconciliation of the two Koreas.
