Freezing and reversing N. Korea’s nuclear advances


“The direct dialogue is overdue, it is historic, and it carries high stakes,” says executive director of the Arms Control Association, Daryll Kimball, regarding the upcoming Kim-Trump summit. In an op-ed in the New Straits Times, Kimball discusses the steps required for the long-term goal of denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, as well as a durable peace regime. He argues that the summit should produce an agreement on a “balanced framework for sustained, direct, high-level negotiations,” on these and other issues, and suggests that “leaders in Washington, Seoul, Beijing, Tokyo, and elsewhere should seek to solidify Pyongyang’s nuclear testing suspension by securing its signature and ratification of the 1996 [CTBT], along with a confidence-building visit by the [CTBTO].” Read the full op-ed here.
