Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Jong Ho Ri addressed ICAS Fall Symposium 2019 Prologue, Friday September 13 2019, held at the Congressional Auditorium and Atrium CVC 200, US Capitol Visitors Center, Washington, DC.

He argued that "the Korean Peninsula is facing a crisis now. Of course, there is no doubt that Kim Jong-un's reckless nuclear & missile provocations are worsening the situation on the Korean Peninsula. However, what's more serious is that President Trump does not trust President Moon Jae-in & his administration".

ICAS Discussants included Dan Gallington, Peter Huessy, Tong Kim, Don Kirk, David Maxwell, Larry Niksch, and Tara O.

He was a featured speaker at the ICAS Winter Symposium 2018 where Jong Ho presented "Kim Jong Un's Grand Strategy and His Ultimate Goal".

Thank you.
