Takeo Harada, CEO & Representative of the Institute for International Strategy and Information Analysis, Inc (IISIA)

Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English

"A Future Scenario for East Asia beyond North Korea Crisis"

One day before the historic summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un Singapore, author and former Foreign Ministry official Takeo Harada will place the North Korea issue in the broader context of the power game in East Asia and the future regional order.

The fast-changing situation on the Korean peninsula appears to have left Japan on the sidelines compared to South Korea, the United States and China, while its continued focus on the abductee issue poses a challenge to any reconciliation with North Korea.

Harada, the CEO of the Institute for International Strategy and Information Analysis, has written a number of books addressing the geopolitical situation in north-east Asia, including: "DPRK vs. America: Counterfeiting issue and power game in East Asia" (published in 2008 in Japanese) and "Pax Japonica: The Resurrection of Japan" (published in 2017 in English).

He was quoted in The New York Times recently advising caution to the U.S. side ahead of the June 12 summit: "Even though they could be very friendly during preparation talks, you never know how the North Korean side would behave in the last moment during the meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un."

Harada served in the Foreign Ministry from 1993 to 2005, including four years at the embassy in Germany, and is a fluent German and English speaker.

Please reserve in advance, 3211-3161 or on the website (still & TV cameras inclusive). Reservations and cancellations are not complete without confirmation.
