The authors of the CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force report on U.S. Policy Toward the Korean Peninsula discuss their report, which identifies three essential elements of an internationally coordinated response to the threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear development effort: first, denuclearization of the Korean peninsula; second, regional cohesion, enabled by close U.S.-South Korea relations; and, third, China’s cooperation and active engagement.

This Task Force is made possible in part by generous support from the Korea Foundation.
