The Ministry of National Defense of the Republic of Korea (ROK MND) hosted the 9th Seoul Defense Dialogue (SDD) on September 1-3, 2020. This year, most of the international security forums were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Judging that dialogue and communication for multilateral security cooperation is even more important under unfavorable conditions, the ROK MND sought an alternative option to hold a video conference on overcoming new security challenges. The 2020 SDD, under the main theme of “Emerging Security Challenges: Overcoming through Solidarity and Cooperation,” consists of the three sessions: “Global Order and International Cooperation in the Age of COVID-19,” “Non-traditional Security Threats: Implications for National Defense,” and “The Korean Peninsula Peace Process: Achievements, Outlook, and Challenges.”
