The summit meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam brought the two leaders together for the second time in less than a year. U.S.-North Korea negotiations on nuclear issues have been at a stalemate since the first summit in Singapore that touted lofty but vague goals. What results did the second summit yield?
On March 6, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings hosted a distinguished panel of experts for a discussion on the Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi. The speakers offered observations and analyses of the summit, address the implications for and potential next steps in U.S.-North Korea relations, and what this means for denuclearization of North Korea, inter-Korean relations, and the U.S.-ROK alliance.
After the session, panelists answered questions from the audience.
