AP Initiative Chairman’s op-ed published in The New York Times

AP Initiative Chairman Yoichi Funabashi wrote an op-ed, “North Korea’s Nuclear Weapons, Japan’s Bind,” for The New York Times, published on September 14, 2017.

In this article, Dr. Funabashi explains the vulnerable predicament that Japan is in with regard to North Korea, lacking the ability to improve its defensive or offensive military capabilities any time soon. He proposes that the unprecedented actions by the North provide Japan an opening to improve relations with regional players to move toward a multilateral, diplomatic solution, and have contributed to building domestic consensus on security policy within Japan.
