The February edition of the monthly radio program America Abroad looks in-depth at the Korean peninsula following the death of Kim Jong-il, including a report from South Korea on a generational gap in attitudes toward Korean reunification between older and younger South Koreans, interviews with North Korean defectors regarding Kim Jong-un, a review of the 1994 U.S.-DPRK nuclear negotiations, and a discussion among America Abroad Anchor Ray Suarez, Georgetown’s Victor Cha, and myself on the impact of Kim Jong-il’s death on U.S.-DPRK relations. The podcast for the show is available here.
