This is the October 1, 2015 hearing titled "Reviewing the Civil Nuclear Agreement in South Korea," held before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Bob Corker: "Today we are here to review our second civil nuclear cooperation agreement this year, the fourth in the Asia-Pacific region in the past 2 years. While we focus in on the agreement before us with South Korea, I would remind my colleagues that in the past 2 years we have also entered into agreements with Taiwan, Vietnam, and China. In reviewing this agreement, we must weigh the impacts of its contents on our global nuclear proliferation objective against the political and economic benefits of these arrangements. Each of the previously mentioned agreements has very different approaches to addressing the key nuclear proliferation concern--should the United States support the continued spread of fuel cycle technologies, namely enrichment and reprocessing capabilities? I do hope we will really think about the details of this today." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Thomas M. Countryman.
