Great Decisions - Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future?
Guest Speaker: Mark Canning
Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the present administration has brought a new urgency to dealing with them. President Trump has met with Vladimir Putin as the New START Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021. The first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. Should past nuclear talks guide future US nuclear arms control negotiations? How will we stabilize our nuclear future?
For most of the past 40 years, Mark Canning has lived and worked overseas for the United States Department of State. He served in many locations, such as China, South Africa and Korea. He is an expert on nuclear negotiations, and North Korea, which makes him an excellent speaker for this topic.
