Glyn Ford talks about the Trump-Kim Talks in Vietnam

Track2Asia Director Glyn Ford talks with Prof Faisal Devji (University of Oxford) about the February 2019 summit in Vietnam between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. Ford outlines how North Korean denuclearisation can only happen with serious security guarantees, and finds it unlikely any time in the near future, especially in light of the fate of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi and the experience of countries such as Iraq and Iran.

Likewise, he believes that reunification is only possible in a timespan of decades, rather than years, and that the huge disparity between the South’s and North’s economies would lead to a severe economic migration crisis.
