The Korea Crisis: Déjà Vu All Over Again? Thu, 2018-01-11 12:38

Professor Steve Tsang, Director of the SOAS China Institute, talks about the Korean Crisis. Will the Trump Administration manage to get China to help resolve the nuclear and missile challenges from North Korea? This talk will focus on the real drivers behind China’s policy towards the challenges which North Korean regime under Kim Jung-en has posed for the USA, the world and, indeed, China itself. Professor Tsang suggests that China’s objective is to contain the problem not to resolve it, even though there is in principle an option available to the USA which, can persuade Beijing to work to resolve the problem.
