TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 2017
2:00PM TO 3:00PM – REMARKS FOLLOWED BY Q&A
Missile launches, political turmoil and corporate scandal. The Korean peninsula continues to make front pages around the world and experts are divided on how it will play out. A newly elected government has signalled it wants warmer relations with Beijing. An early reach-out to Pyonyang has already been rebuffed. Meanwhile U.S. President Donald Trump has warned China to find a solution, or he will. Ambassador Park offered views on these topics and answered questions.
Ambassador Park is responsible for public diplomacy in the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She served as director general for international development in the MOFA and was Minister in the Korean embassy in Beijing, China. She has served as a minister counsellor in the Korean mission to the UN and has extensive experience in international security and trade.
