North Korea & the Future of Security on the Korean Peninsula
- This event has passed.
ACIR is honored to host retired South Korean Lieutenant General and former Commander of South Korea’s Special Forces In-bum Chun who will speak on the topic, “Contemporary Issues on the Korean Peninsula.”
General Chun pulls no punches when he speaks, and he has much to say about North Korea’s “Supreme Leader,” Kim Jong Un, and his nuclear ambitions. Is Kim stalling and buying time with the current American and South Korean administrations while he continues his march toward completion of a nuclear tipped missile? General Chun’s review of past European and American administrations as well as the current one will prove to be a most interesting one.
General Chun is the first South Korean officer since the Vietnam War to be awarded the U.S. Bronze Star, and in 2016, he received the U.S. Special Operations Command Medal. General Chun speaks perfect English, and he leaves no misunderstandings about his positions regarding threats on the Korean Peninsula and what realistic options face the United States and South Korea.
