Dealing with North Korea's Nuclear Ambitions – A New Approach Needed?

Stephen W. Bosworth, Former U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Policy

RSVP required by 5PM February 18

This is a keynote speech open to the public during the Sixth Annual Koret Conference on "Engaging North Korea: Projects, Challenges, and Prospects."

The North Korean nuclear threat has now been with us for more than a quarter century. Our policy of "strategic patience" seems more patient than strategic as the US waits for Pyongyang to meet certain preconditions before we return to the bargaining table. But North Korea continues to develop both its nuclear weapons and missile systems, and there are no negotiations in sight. What alternatives are there to our current approach? If so, what might those look like?

Ambassador Bosworth is a former career diplomat, he served as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, the Philippines, and Tunisia. Most recently, he served as U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Policy for the Obama administration.
