Mansfield Foundation Executive Director Gordon Flake discusses the complexities of China’s role in dealing with North Korea. Though stating concern about North Korea's nuclear and missile development and having hosted the Six Party Talks, over the past year and half China has backed more visibly the DPRK regime—even in the face of last year’s provocations. How does this step-up in support impact the United States and South Korea? What are the implications for China’s rise and regional security? This program builds upon the Society’s earlier discussion with John Park of the U.S. Institute of Peace on the interaction between Chinese and Korean Communist parties relative to the leadership transition in North Korea. Mr. Flake’s presentation promises unique insight into the regional power dynamics.
