Lopez, who served on the UN Panel of Experts for North Korea between October 2010 and July 2011, and is the Hesburgh Chair of Peace Studies at the Kroc Institute. The meeting highlights included consideration of the United States’ role in any discussions, the resumption of six-party talks, and the uncertainty in North Korea’s future, particularly with regard to nonproliferation.
