Invitation: 6 March: The Hanoi Summit - What Future for the Korean Peninsula?

25 February 2019

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are meeting for a second summit in Hanoi on 28 February. The first summit in Singapore did not lead to the announced concrete outcomes. While North Korea has refrained from testing any missiles, there has been little progress on the ‘complete and verifiable destruction’ of the DPRK’s nuclear weapons. North Korea is trying to link any such moves with a lifting of UN sanctions, now often breached by various actors. The EU is not directly involved but has been a strong supporter of the sanctions regime. If there is an agreement, however, it is likely that the EU may be asked to provide technical and economic assistance to the DPRK.

To discuss the outcome of the Hanoi summit, the EU-Asia Centre and the KF-VUB Korea Chair invite you to a panel discussion from 17:00-18:30 on Wednesday 6 March at the Brussels Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1000 Brussels.
