Rediscovering Common Bonds | Talking with America about China-Japan-Korea Relations

May 12, 2016
Tokyo, Japan
The eighth seminar in the series brought together Gerald Curtis, one of America’s leading experts on Japanese politics and diplomacy and on US-Japan relations, as well as other experts to explore America’s relationship to trilateral China-Japan-Korea ties. The current trilateral diplomatic strategy is closely tied to each country’s relationship with America and the strategic calculations of all four countries are closely interconnected, not only in terms of national security but also on the economic and financial fronts. What does the Japan-Korea-China system mean to the US? How should the three countries proceed? Keeping in mind the North Korean nuclear problem and controversial US presidential election, speakers discussed these questions from a global perspective.
