August's Washington Brief forum features Amb. Christopher Hill, Amb. Joseph DeTrani, Dr. Alexandre Mansourov, and Dr. Michael Jenkins with guest speaker Mr. Sydney Seiler.
As our diplomacy with Pyongyang proceeds in fits and starts, the international community faces many risks and opportunities in the pursuit of the peaceful resolution of numerous hot button issues with the DPRK and deeply entrenched inter-Korean conflict. For the U.S. and the world, these include nuclear weapons and human rights. For North Korea, these are regime survival, national security, and economic modernization. Korean reunification is the big issue that sits in the back of everyone's mind.
We invite you to join a stimulating discussion among the most informed thinkers on Northeast Asia and the Korean Peninsula.
Our guest panelist Mr. Sydney Seiler just returned from five years as the senior analyst for North Korea with the U.S. Forces in Korea, and is now the National Intelligence Officer for North Korea in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. He is the intelligence community’s senior officer for North Korea, responsible for all analysis provided to the President, the Executive Branch and Congress. He will discuss the Biden Administration’s recent policy review for dealing with North Korea, with commentary on prospects for resolving issues with the North.
This next forum will be held on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 at 2 PM EDT, livestreamed right here on twtfoundation.org. Register for the August forum below.
