On July 27 at 12:00 Moscow time (GMT+3), the Valdai Club hosted an expert discussion on the situation on the Korean Peninsula. The discussion was timed to coincide with the release of a Valdai Club report: “The Return of History: Cold War Lessons for Current International Crises”.
On July 27, 1953, the three-year Korean War came to an end. However, the countries failed to sign a full-fledged peace treaty. Despite the freezing of the conflict, the Korean Peninsula remains one of the instability points on the world map. The situation is aggravated by the active development of the DPRK’s nuclear programme, which the international community has been striving to prevent for many years. The Six-Party Talks did not yield the desired results. The situation on the Korean Peninsula today is among the key unresolved international crises, the resolution of which seems unlikely amid today’s rapidly changing international realities.
