Asan North Korea Conference

Session Description

North Korea has conducted three nuclear tests since 2006, yet not much is known about its nuclear capability. There is little consensus on the scope of North Korea’s uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing programs, not to mention the size of its nuclear arsenal. Only with the informed analysis of the issue will the international community be able to devise effective strategies to counter the North Korean nuclear threat. This session will focus on its assessment.
