40 Retired Generals and Diplomats Support Continued US-North Korea Diplomacy

by American College of National Security Leaders

Last June, amid dramatically rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, President Donald Trump traveled to Singapore to meet with DPRK supreme leader Kim Jong-un. While unorthodox, there is little denying that the president’s top-down approach created an opportunity for a breakthrough that eluded his predecessors. The two leaders agreed in principle on the goal of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Largely symbolic with many essential details left unresolved, the meeting dramatically reduced tensions in the region and created space for diplomacy to succeed. As retired Generals, Admirals, Ambassadors and Senior Executives we believe that, as the President prepares to return to the region, his focus must be on obtaining results. He must move beyond symbolism if he hopes to make real headway towards ending the danger of the North Korean nuclear program.
