Will Kerry's Bilateral Approach to North Korea Work?
Recorded on October 8, 2004
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
During the first presidential debate, Senator John Kerry
suggested that the U.S. commit to one-on-one talks with North
Korea, abandoning the Six-Party talks currently underway. Should
the United States engage Kim Jong Il in bilateral talks in an
effort to stop his nuclear weapons program? Or is continuing the
Six-Party talks the best way to eliminate the North Korean nuclear
threat? Join us to discuss the possible ways to resolve the nuclear
conundrum on the Korean peninsula with Rep. Mark Kirk, R-Ill.,
member of the House Appropriations Committee.
