The strengthening of the U.S.-ROK-Japan trilateral relationship comes at a critical time when North Korea’s unabated nuclear ambitions pose a growing threat to peace and security in the Asia-Pacific. Moreover, transnational challenges will require a concerted approach from all three allies.
On March 29, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings hosted The Honorable Antony J. Blinken, deputy secretary of state, for a discussion on the United States vision for the future of the U.S.-ROK-Japan trilateral relationship and the next steps for improving and expanding cooperation.
Katharine H.S. Moon, the SK-Korea Foundation Chair in Korea Studies, offered welcoming remarks and Brookings President Strobe Talbott provided introductions. Deputy Secretary Blinken took questions from the audience following his remarks, which were moderated by Richard Bush, director of the Center for East Asia Policy Studies.
