Grant Newsham is a Researcher, Commentator and Consultant on Asia/Pacific Defense issues and a senior research fellow at the Japan Forum for Strategic Studies in Tokyo.
Grant lays out the “general situation” on the Korean Peninsula and how Japan and China each view the current situation in North Korea.
We discuss the ramifications of a military confrontation on the Korean Peninsula and it’s impact on the region.
Finally, we discuss sanctions that could be used to compel North Korea to the bargaining table IF China decided to cooperate in the implementation of those sanctions.
A GREAT discussion of an incredibly complex situation, Grant Newsham is a wonderful guest who breaks down this issue so that all of us can have a better understand of it.
