Kim is executive director of the Korea Policy Institute and professor of politics and international relations at Scripps College.
Co-director of Foreign Policy In Focus, Feffer is author of The Future of U.S.-Korean Relations.
He said today: "Applying sanctions against North Korea and conducting
military exercises near its border have not led to a change in North
Korean behavior or progress toward denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.
Instead, North Korea has unveiled its uranium enrichment facility and
artillery fire has broken out near the disputed maritime boundary
between north and south. As the two Koreas step up their conflict, it is
vital for the United States to work with its allies as well as China
and Russia to restart negotiations in northeast Asia."
FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
