China Is Protecting North Korea’s Nukes
(See J. A. Bosco, p. 10, December 2011; E. A. McVadon and D. Yoon, pp. 9, 84, February 2012; and J. A. Bosco, pp. 84-85, March 2012 Proceedings)
Rear Admiral Eric A. McVadon, U.S. Navy (Retired), senior adviser and director emeritus for Asia-Pacific Studies, Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis—Mr. Bosco and I are obviously not going to agree on whether China wants North Korea to have nuclear weapons. We do, nonetheless, both want Beijing to play an effective role in getting Pyongyang to relinquish its nuclear-weapon programs. Many of us are conscientiously pursuing that, including via a series of senior-level Track 1.5 (government, think-tank, etc.) workshops organized by the U.S. Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis over almost a decade.
