David L. Phillips and Tsuneo Nishida write in the Huffington Post that North Korea’s nuclear proliferation will be one of Trump’s first and most vexing challenges. 

Phillips and Nishida argue that the US should take initiative to gather participants in the Six Party Talks and make efforts towards a negotiated deal freezing North Korea's nuclear program. They emphasize the role Japan can play in guiding US involvement.

Tsuneo Nishida is Director of the Peace Science Center at Hiroshima University. He served Japan’s Foreign Ministry for 40 years, most recently as Japan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations. David L. Phillips is Director of the Program on Peace-building and Rights at Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights. He served as a Senior Adviser to the US Department of State under Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
