Park Han-shik: Peace offering

Park Han-shik, an emeritus professor of international affairs in UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs, was quoted in an article by the South Korean news agency Korea JoongAng Daily about former President Jimmy Carter’s offer to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“Should former President Carter be able to visit North Korea, he would like to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and discuss a peace treaty between the United States and the North and a complete denuclearization of North Korea and contribute toward establishing a ­permanent peace regime on the Korean Peninsula,” said Park, a prominent scholar of North Korea-related issues who has traveled to Pyongyang more than 50 times.
