-------- DENUCLEARIZATION OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA ----------------------------

*A seminar by Dr. Leon Sigal, Social Science Research Council, New York*

The United States is blinkered by preconceived notions about dealing with  
North Korea, many of them doubtful. In his lecture Dr. Sigal will discuss his  
belief that negotiating with the North is the only realistic means of  
resolving the nuclear issue. The starting point for that effort is the  
September 19, 2005 joint statement, an agreement concluded in six-party talks  
for North Korea to abandon its nuclear program. However, he cautions that  
North’s “strategic patience” may not last for long.

Dr. Leon V. Sigal is the Director of the Northeast Asia Cooperative Security  
Project at the Social Science Research Council in New York. He is a leading  
specialist on the challenges posed by the presence of nuclear weapons in  
North Korea. He has written extensively on nuclear arms control and on the  
Korean question. His book, Disarming Strangers: Nuclear Diplomacy with North  
Korea, was widely acclaimed. He was a Professor of Government at Wesleyan  
University for many years and also taught at Columbia and Princeton
