Dr. Bojiang Yang – Brookings Institution
Dr. Bojiang Yang recently spoke on a panel at UC San Francisco about relations in North East Asia.
Of the five speakers, Dr. Yang was the most difficult to follow. It had much to do with not being able to hear him. This is my polite way of saying that he mumbled a lot and his ability to express himself in English was challenged by a non-cooperating microphone among other things.
Still – there is one point that struck me.
Dr. Yang has been tasked with coming up a possible follow through scenarios IF the six party talks dealing with North Korean nuclear power crisis succeeds. I want to know how that will affect business in Korea, Japan, China, Russia and all of Asia.
I didn’t know what to make of the IF…and, why not when.
Still, I was struck by the planning for the eventuality, likely or not, of the success of the talks.
His goal is to establish or encourage the establishment of Regional Security Mechanism in NorthEast Asia to allow for a peaceful nuclearization of North Korea.
Wow! That’s a mouthful. And just what we need – another group of people for North Korea to ignore.
In any event – planning is going on and suggestions for follow through on the successful completion of talks with North Korea can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do you think should be done?
