Please join the National Committee on North Korea and the East-West Center in Washington for a North Korea in the World webinar on North Korea-Vietnam relations, featuring Mr. Khang X. Vu, doctoral candidate at Boston College.
This webinar will examine the broad arc of relations between North Korea and Vietnam, beginning with Pyongyang’s relations with Hanoi during Vietnam’s “American War” and the impact that Hanoi’s victory in that conflict had on North Korea. It will discuss the changing scope of the North Korea-Vietnam relationship in the post-Cold War era, and the relevance (or lack of relevance) of Vietnam’s Doi Moi reforms to North Korea. Finally, it will assess contemporary relations between the countries in light of contemporary geopolitics and the 2019 Hanoi summit meeting between the U.S. and North Korea.
This North Korea in the World webinar is the third in a series examining North Korea’s historical and contemporary relations with countries in the Global South. The North Korea in the World project is a joint initiative of the National Committee on North Korea and the East-West Center in Washington; the NorthKoreaInTheWorld.org website collects and curates information and data on North Korea’s external economic and diplomatic relations.
This seminar will be on-the-record and recorded on both Zoom and YouTube.
