As US-DPRK relations remain on tense footing on the peninsula, President Trump’s trip to Asia was meant to reassure allies and strengthen the security relationship between Japan, South Korea and the United States. What did he accomplish? Did he reassure allies or exacerbate existing problems on the peninsula? Join Ambassador Robert Gallucci for a conversation on the president’s recent trip to Asia and the implications for US policy going forward. Lunch and light refreshments will be served.
