This is the June 25 and August 28, 1980 hearings titled "United States-South Korean Relations" held before the House Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Affairs. From the opening statement of Lester L. Wolf: "The events of the past month in South Korea have caused serious concern for us, of course, but particularly for the people of South Korea. Just a few months ago, during a visit by the subcommittee, we heard cautious optimism expressed on all sides that the students and the military would cooperate, that democracy would take hold, and that the domestic uncertainty which had adversely affected all aspects of Korean life could be addressed by a people confident of their future. [...] Our witness, Michael Armacost, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia, is particularly well suited to help us in today's task, as he spent nearly 3 years as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and as a member of the National Security Council staff, specializing in defense and strategic questions for North Asia." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael Armacost, Don Bonker, and Richard C. Holbrooke.
