The article is devoted to the study of the process of discussing by American politicians and experts the problem of denuclearization of the Korean peninsula from the point of view of the possibility to achieve a political consensus in the U.S. In the context of the current developments in the region the authors make comparative analysis of viewpoints of the most influential interest groups within the American establishment both in the Democratic and Republican parties. It is concluded that since all of these viewpoints of the groups in many respects go in line with President Trump’s policy of denuclearization, it should be expected that the Administration and Congress can reach a consensus on the problem in the near future.
