Guest Host: Steve Roberts

South Korea announced last week that the leaders of North and South Korea will meet this summer in Pyongyang. While many dismissed the announcement as a ploy to influence last Thursday’s parliamentary elections in South Korea, others said it could lead to a significant lessening of military tensions and a healthier economic relationship. A panel talks about the announcement and what could lie ahead.
