The temperature difference between China and the US and Japan… Will North Korea launch additional provocations?
During President Yoon Seok-yeol’s trip to Southeast Asia, the key agenda was by far North Korea’s nuclear and missile threats.
South Korea, the United States and Japan have strengthened their will to cooperate thoroughly and put pressure on him to prevent further provocations, but China’s approach has been different.
This is Reporter Shin Hyun-jung.
The leaders of the three countries, including ASEAN and the G20, agreed to strengthen cooperation and respond strongly against North Korea’s nuclear threat through a series of talks.
We shared real-time North Korean missile warning information and reaffirmed our commitment to extended deterrence on the Korean Peninsula.
On the other hand, the response of China, another axis of the North Korean nuclear issue, was different.
This is because President Yoon Seok-yeol and US President Joe Biden held talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping and emphasized cooperation, but showed a temperature difference.
“China’s role is very important in seeking freedom, peace and prosperity in the international community. Korea must communicate closely and cooperate with China.”
On the other hand, President Xi showed an attitude of trying to distance himself from the theory of China’s role, saying, “I hope that South Korea will actively improve inter-Korean relations.”
A similar situation was created at the US-China summit.
“I have made it clear that I believe I have an obligation to inform North Korea that it should not conduct long-term missile and nuclear tests.”
In response, President Xi expressed a difference in perspective, saying, “We must continue to resolve North Korea’s reasonable concerns in a balanced way.”
This led to the interpretation that the new structure of the Cold War between South Korea, the United States, Japan, North Korea, China and Russia was fully revealed in the solution to the North Korean nuclear issue amid a deepening conflict between the United States and China and the United States. and the US
China’s attitude, which appears to be siding with North Korea, also leads to concerns that it could lead to additional provocations from North Korea.
“From North Korea’s point of view, China’s position has been reaffirmed, and it can be seen that China has gained strength for additional nuclear tests or long-range missile launches in the future. There is a possibility of provocation with little burden…”
On the other hand, there are comments that the strengthening of cooperation between Korea, the United States and Japan and the strong attitude of the United States will act as pressure on China, which will also be a burden on North Korea, which has no choice. but to be aware of China.
