Idealism Rooted in Realism - The U.S.-South Korea Alliance
Our recently returned Ambassador to South Korea, Admiral Harry Harris, is no stranger to tensions in the Pacific. Prior to his appointment, he served as Admiral of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and as Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command.

In our recent Roundtable, Ambassador Harris discussed nuclear security risks, the complex relationships in the region and his role as Ambassador to one of the United States' most important allies.
