Alliances in the PacRim are shifting in response to military posturing, including nuclear threats, from North Korea. The US, for example, has installed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile systems in South Korea, while China has amassed troops on its border with North Korea. President Donald Trump met with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un on June 12, 2018, in Singapore, in the first summit meeting between the countries’ leaders. Denuclearization of the Korean peninsula was the key agenda item, although no concrete commitments were made. The Forum heard from three discussants, who offered first-hand knowledge of this complex situation, focusing on the need for consistency and reciprocity as diplomatic initiatives move forward.
