[the nuclear option]

Topic: Disarmament

Fred Kaplan at Slate provides a useful summary of the issues at stake at the NPT Review Conference currently taking place in New York. His perspectives, furthermore, are quite similar to my own, and they’re in line with South Korea’s approach as well, although some of the more exotic suggestions — an anti-proliferation expeditionary force, for example — are no one’s stated policy, and I would have to think seriously about them before deciding they made sense.

Hopefully Ambassador Kim’s Deputy Minister Chun Yung-woo’s statement at the coference, which I worked on in its early stages, will be up on the Korean Mission website soon.

Update: The speech is now available here.
