When the Republic of Korea’s president Moon visited Washington late last week for a meeting with U.S. president Trump, both leaders talked positively about the alliance between their countries.

But they also discussed the pressing issue of security on the Korean peninsula. And, they expressed concerns over the on-going nuclear tests by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with Trump issuing a new warning to the DPRK.

To discuss the relationship between the Republic of Korea and the United States and where they can go in the future:

    • Yonho Kim, a senior researcher with the U.S.-Korea Institute at the Johns Hopkins University
    • Gregg Brazinsky, an associate professor of history and international studies at The George Washington University
    • Myung-Koo Kang, a professor at Baruch College and he’s an expert on DPRK-R.O.K. relations
    • Qinduo Xu, a political analyst with China Radio Internationa
