The Asia Foundation Quoted in BBC on Obama’s North Korea Policy
January 5, 2009 — Scott Snyder, The Asia Foundation’s Senior Associate, International Relations, recently gave his thoughts on the Obama administration’s North Korea policy in a BBC Worldwide piece on U.S. talks with North Korea. “I expect high-level contact between the Obama administration and North Korea in 2009, if some post-phase two activities can be initiated” Snyder said.
North Korea’s rejection of a proposal over ways to verify its nuclear declaration, and the incomplete disabling of key nuclear facilities in Yongbyon have created the deadlock. According to the piece, experts agree that resolving these two issues are necessary before “high level” contact between Pyongyang and Washington can occur.
