Honorable Rose Gottemoeller is the former Deputy Secretary General of NATO and Frank E. and Arthur W. Payne Distinguished Lecturer at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies. In this video, Ms. Gottemoeller discusses the difference between national and international security. She takes a close look at the nuclear weapons program of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) or North Korea and highlights the possible danger that North Korea’s nuclear weapons could pose to the world, as well as different ways to mitigate this risk. Corie Wieland, a graduate student at Stanford, is also invited to share a possible solution to North Korea’s nuclear weapons problem.
