Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Rep Byung Joo Kim will address The Korean Peninsula Issues at the Virtual ICAS Summer Symposium Veritas on July 20, 2021.

GEN (R) Byung Joo Kim is an Assemblyman of the ROK National Assembly, a member of the National Defense Committee, and deputy floor leader of the Democratic Party of the ROK. In his first year as a lawmaker, he main-sponsored a resolution asking supports for the ROK-US Alliance, the very first one ever to pass the plenary session of the National Assembly.

A retired career military officer, Rep Kim served in the ROK Army for over 39 years from his entry into Korea Military Academy until his retirement from active duty in 2018 at the top ROK military rank- a four-star general. During his early year in the service, he, as an artillery officer, finished his Officer Advanced Course in the U.S. Army Field Artillery School. In his final position, he served as the deputy commander of the ROK-U.S. Combined Forces Command.

Thank you.
