U.S. Policy Toward the Korean Peninsula: Report of a CFR-Sponsored Independent Task Force

Panelist: Charles L. "Jack" Pritchard
Panelist: Evans J.R. Revere
Panelist: Scott A. Snyder
Speaker: David E. Sanger

The CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force report on U.S. Policy Toward the Korean Peninsula assesses current U.S. policy toward both North and South Korea. The report 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 and an approach that attempts to resolve rather than simply manage the issue; 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.
