A new Korea

Agence France-Presse, a news agency based out of France, quoted Han S. Park, University Professor of International Affairs and director of UGA’s Center for Global Issues, in an article about North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un, son of former leader Kim Jong Il.

“I think there will be more interest on the part of Washington and Seoul to work with the new North Korea,” said Park, who recently spoke to senior officials in Washington, D.C., who voiced support for Track Two efforts. “They were all encouraged by what we accomplished in [the Georgia Peace-Building Seminar] and, to my request the United States issue visas to North Koreans in the future, they were more positively inclined.”
