Event Description

Forged in blood during the Korean War 1950-53, the alliance between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States has served as a linchpin for peace and security of the Korean Peninsula, the Asia-Pacific Region and beyond, laying the foundation for the ROK to become one of the most vibrant democracies and advanced economies in the world. Now, the ROK-US alliance has evolved from a military alliance to a comprehensive strategic alliance and global partnership with a view to coping with various global challenges jointly in such fields as counter-terrorism, non-proliferation, climate change, development aid and human rights.

Meanwhile, North Korea continues to pose threats with its nuclear and missile programs despite the urging of the international community including a series of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Against this background, Deputy Consul General Kim will talk about the latest developments in the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia and also the future prospect of the ROK-US alliance and partnership under the new ROK government.
