**This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, June 17.**

Join Hudson Institute for a conversation on the growing tensions in East and South Asia that pose a stark threat to the United States and Japan's shared goal of a free and open Indo-Pacific. Hudson Institute Asia-Pacific Security Chair Patrick M. Cronin will moderate the discussion.

Two years after the historic summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, attempts at the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of North Korea has little to show for it, and Pyongyang appears to be digging in for further provocations.

Meanwhile, deepening questions about General Secretary Xi’s economic and political performance as head of the Chinese Communist Party may be accelerating China’s apparent abandonment of the "one country, two systems" framework with Hong Kong, along with its bellicosity toward democratic Taiwan and acts of maritime coercion in both the East China Sea and the South China Sea.

How should the United States and Japan address this demanding set of challenges? What actions are necessary to maintain a free and open Indo-Pacific and preserve the rule of law?

Event participants will address these questions while weighing in on how to combat Chinese aggression in the region.
