Kyle Ferrier Speaks with CGTN on South Korea's Prospects after Hanoi Summit
March 11, 2019
KEI Director of Research Kyle Ferrier speaks with CGTN on what the prospects are for South Korea after the no-deal outcome from the U.S.-DPRK summit. In particular, he noted that with both the United States and North Korea still committed to continuing talks, South Korea remains in a robust diplomatic position to act as a mediator. This role, Ferrier believes, will help Seoul also advance inter-Korean cooperation. He also cautioned against analysis that suggests a major economic setback for South Korea as the proposed inter-Korean projects are not significant in the context of the country's broader economic activities.
