On February 22, the Brookings Institution, the Asia Society, and the Korea Economic Institute hosted Christopher R. Hill, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, for a conversation on North Korea and the six-party talks. Ambassador Hill discussed the results of the latest round of talks and the prospects for the future of the process.

Ambassador Hill returned from the six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear disarmament. This session of the talks produced a written agreement that begins the process of implementing the joint statement of September 19, 2005, which committed North Korea to denuclearization.
