: Event Canceled: In the Wake of the Will-They-Won’t-They Summit
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been canceled.
The lead up to June 12th has been a roller coaster as U.S President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made plans to meet, cancelled them, and then reinstated them. The two countries have been publicly clashing about denuclearization, and third parties such as China, South Korea, and Japan are eager to get involved with the summit. Now that the summit’s back on, we’re on track for a historic tête-à-tête. Will it be high on spectacle and low on substance? Will it create a framework for follow through and implementation? What are the implications of the two leaders’ meeting?
Please join the Center for American Progress for an analysis of the June 12 summit with leading North Korea experts as we look at where U.S.-North Korea relations stand, where they’re going, and what the repercussions are for other regional players.
