Dr. Siegfried S. Hecker
Dr. Siegfried S. Hecker will give a free public lecture titled “North Korea beyond The Interview; Russia Beyond Crimea.” The lecture is at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 17 at the Church of jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1967 18th St. in Los Alamos).
“North Korea is building nuclear weapons at an ever accelerating pace,” Hecker said. “Russia is restoring its nuclear arsenal. Whereas U.S.-North Korean relations have never been good, U.S.-Russia relations have moved from cooperaton in the 1990s to confrontation today. I will examine what the future may hold for both cases based on my visits to North Korea and Russia and analysis of recent events.”
