Competition or Cooperation in NE Asia? Perspectives from the US, Japan, & Russia

Panel discussion featuring Yuchi Katio, Sheila A. Smith, and Ivan Timofeev; moderated by Tom Graham of Kissinger Associates.

Northeast Asia is perhaps the most dynamic economic and geopolitical region in the world today. The North Korean nuclear program presents an urgent security challenge, while the rise of China radically reshapes the regional and global strategic contours. Though still unlikely, a war between major powers is no longer unimaginable, and the possibility of one between nuclear-armed countries makes headlines. The challenges and opportunities of this region rank high on the foreign policy agendas of Japan, Russia, and the United States, three powers whose interactions have for the greater part of the past 125 years played a critical role in determining its fortunes. Can these three countries cooperate today to ease the tensions and develop the opportunities of Northeast Asia, or will competing interests lead to more destructive outcomes? Experts from Japan, Russia, and the United States will explore the possibilities.
