This lecture will explain the 1957 U.S. decision to introduce nuclear weapons to Korea. Then in the mid-1970s, the U.S. attempted to discourage South Korea from developing its own nuclear capability, ultimately resulting in the withdrawal of nuclear weapons from the peninsula in the early 1990s. This lecture will also discuss the rise of North Korea’s nuclear program and the U.S. efforts to stop or contain it. (SMSIA)
