N. Korea in focus with Biden due in Asia for key summits

By Dr. Go Myong-Hyun

With President Biden due in South Korea and Japan in the coming days for some important summits, a topic high on the agenda will no doubt be North Korea.

The regime's been preparing for a nuclear test, and could even conduct a missile test while one or more of these summits are going on.

The North right now is also dealing with its first reported major outbreak of COVID-19, though, which could complicate some of its plans.

To find out more about these summits, their implications for security in the region, and what North Korea might do, we are pleased to welcome tonight here in the studio Dr. Go Myong-hyun of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies and via Skype in Washington, DC, Dr. Patrick Cronin Chair for Asia-Pacific Security at the Hudson Institute.
