“It’s time for negotiation with North Korea, not military action,” Jack Devine & Yoshi Yamamoto, Houston Chronicle, August 10, 2017

Neither President Donald Trump’s “Fire and Fury” nor Kim Jong-Un’s most recent threat about Guam provide a path to sensibly resolve the growing North Korea nuclear crisis, according to TAG President Jack Devine and Japanese policy analyst Yoshi Yamamoto. In an article published August 10, 2017 in the Houston Chronicle, Devine and Yamamoto argue that South Korea’s new President, Moon Jae-in, and overtures to its neighbors to hold direct military talks is a much-needed opportunity to change the course of our dealings with North Korea. They believe that ultimately, the end goal is a treaty with Kim Jong-Un that includes the incremental denuclearization (or at a minimum a cessation on further development of its program) based on a robust verification protocol – in exchange for diplomatic and economic reintegration with the world.
