About This Episode

Tens of thousands protest in Germany against the country’s far-right AfD party, following a report that extremists discussed plans for the mass deportation of immigrants. Despite increasing criticism, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restated his opposition to a two-state solution. Then, in a historic break, North Korea drops from its constitution the commitment to unification with South Korea. The Council's Ivo Daalder hosts World Review with Stefan Kornelius, Peter Spiegel, and Carla Anne Robbins to discuss these issues.
