Yonhap News Agency and the Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) of Stanford University will host an international conference this week on how to tackle pending security issues in Northeast Asia, organizers said Monday.

The conference, set for Tuesday, will look at security prospects in the region amid signs that North Korea’s nuclear test, which it has threatened to conduct, appears to be imminent.

The one-day forum, titled “Yonhap-Stanford APARC International Symposium,” will bring together a number of former and current government officials from the allies under the theme of “Northeast Asia under New Leadership.” (Yonhap News)
