Ahn is executive director of Women Cross DMZ. She has written a forthcoming piece on Biden’s trip and said today: “Biden must use his trip to South Korea to take the lead on diplomacy with North Korea by abandoning failed approaches of sanctions and pressure and instead focusing on building trust and reducing tensions. Most important would be officially ending the Korean War with a peace agreement, which would address North Korea’s security concerns and cited justification for its nuclear weapons program. It would also provide the foundation to achieve U.S. goals such as denuclearization and improved human rights. Biden should prioritize diplomacy now to prevent a catastrophic conflict in Northeast Asia.”
