KWTX-TV (Waco, Temple, Killeen/CBS)  tv

International security scholar Peter Campbell, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, sat down with KWTX-TV’s Pete Sousa to discuss the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Much of the talk leading up to the summit has been about the denuclearization of North Korea. “‘Denuclearization,’ the very term, is going to be up for interpretation by both sides,” Campbell said, adding that the summit is a starting point for the two leaders and diplomatic talks are expected to continue in the days and weeks following.

He said he believes that the Chinese will act to reign in North Korea and that it is unlikely that the United States will go to war.
