In an op-ed published by CNN.com, NTI Co-Chairmen Sam Nunn and Ernest J. Moniz call for leaders in China and the United States to pursue diplomatic efforts with North Korea. 

“The United States and North Korea are increasingly at risk of military conflict — most probably through an accident or miscalculation, but possibly a deliberate decision,” Nunn and Moniz wrote.

The authors called attention to the shrinking window of opportunity to puruse a diplomatic solution: “Opportunities for diplomacy are narrowing. Leaders from the United StatesSouth Korea and Japan have recently stated now is not the time for dialogue with Pyongyang — even though any strategy other than war for halting and reversing North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs must, at some point, include talks.”

The authors highlighted the devastating consequences that a conflict on the Korean Peninsula may create, saying: Today’s growing dangers require a policy response that minimizes the risk of a catastrophic conflict, both directly from North Korea’s nuclear and missile program and from our attempts to halt its progress.
