28 Jun After the Trump-Kim Summit: Where do we go from here?

The 12 June meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been lauded as a historical event. But what lies ahead for engagement with North Korea? Has the meeting bolstered Trump domestically, ahead of US midterm elections? How should we view the summit in the wider context of US foreign policy and US-Asia relations? To address these questions, we held an evening talk on Thursday 28 June 2018, featuring views from Mr. Steven Okun, Senior Advisor, McLarty Associates, and Dr. Soo Yeon Kim, Associate Professor and Head, Department of Political Science, NUS. The session was moderated by Mr. Nicholas Fang, Director, Security and Global Affairs, SIIA.

Highlights from the discussion are now posted on our website.

More photos from the event will be available via our Facebook page.


Original Event Synopsis:

The historic meeting between President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-Un is over. But where do we go from here? The joint statement signed by both leaders commits to establish US-North Korea relations and reaffirms the Panmunjom Declaration on “complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula”. Critics have said the document is not as comprehensive as Mr. Trump has claimed, though Mr. Trump has said it merely marks the start of a process of denuclearisation and further discussion between the parties. This discussion at the Singapore Institute of International Affairs aims to examine both the immediate outcomes of the Singapore summit, as well as the longer-term strategic and economic implications for ASEAN and Asia.

Speakers:
