With intensifying international threats, nuclear proliferation has come under close scrutiny as nations attempt to establish security. Given the implications of North Korea’s recent missile testing and tensions in the Mid-east, non-proliferation has become an increasingly relevant topic. Today’s debate will evaluate the considerations for and against the U.S. supporting nuclear weapons development in South Korea.
