ALLIES Weekly Discussion: America’s Future in East Asia

Join ALLIES at 8PM on May 5th as we sit down with the former ambassador to South Korea, retired admiral Harry Harris. Serving as ambassador for nearly three years, Harris has been a key player in helping shape US foreign policy in the Korean Peninsula. Prior to his ambassadorship, he served as the commander of the US Pacific Fleet and later the US Indo-Pacific Command where he has been critical of Chinese aggression in the South China Sea. This Wednesday, we hope to touch on both issues and talk more generally about the state of US foreign policy in East Asia.
