Tensions on the Korean Peninsula

The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Air dates: October 11 ~ 14, 2017) — This past week the Deputy Consulate General from South Korea, Jimin Kim, visited the University of Utah. He spoke mainly about the growing tensions with North Korea, and the importance of South Korea’s long-held alliance with the United States, and what his country is doing to prepare for possible conflict.

Consulate General Kim also played two films by the Republic of Korea Ministry of Foreign Affairs that we couldn’t play during broadcast. For interested listeners, those films can be viewed here:
