Third U.S. Approach to North Korea

Third U.S. Approach to North Korea

Will the intractable Kim Jong-un want to meet the American president again??

The Biden administration pondered for a hundred days, what will she do with the chairman of the DPRK State Council Kim Jong-un. AND, looks like, didn't come up with anything. Meanwhile, the North Koreans, even during the Obama presidency, created an atomic bomb and learned how to pack nuclear charges into ballistic missile warheads., which can reach the territory of the United States.

Two years ago in Hanoi, Donald Trump promised "his friend Kim" the lifting of sanctions in exchange for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, but ... cheated. Kim Jong-un understood this and in response to the end 2019 launched two dozen missiles for various purposes.

As Japanese writes Asia Nikkei, Biden administration rejects "big deal" option, with which Trump wanted to tame Kim Jong-un. And the sanctions remained.

After his first hundred days, the American president, speaking in front of both houses of the American Congress, said, what will counter nuclear threats, outgoing from the DPRK through "Diplomacy and strong containment".

There was little specificity in this statement.. The heads of the G7 foreign ministries did not add it either., gathered in London. In the absence of DPRK representatives, they agreed on its denuclearization "In accordance with the UN Security Council resolution". And upheld all of Australia's sanctions, Japan, South Korea, EU, The United States and the UN Security Council against this country with a population of 25 million people.

The omissions in Biden's stated position are too noticeable. AT Middlebury Institute of International Studies consider, what “Very difficult to understand at first glance, what the White House announced ". According to Jane Psaki, the, recognizing the previous White House policy towards North Korea as erroneous, Biden administration "Calls for graduated, a practical approach with open diplomacy in relations with the DPRK, to make progress in improving US security, their allies and forces deployed in the region ". What else to "improve", if only in neighboring Japan more 30 US military bases? At the same time, Washington is engaged in "open diplomacy" with South Korea and Japan., and with Pyongyang has been unable to get in touch for several months.

Third U.S. Approach to North Korea

Step-by-step approach to solving the problem of nuclear security of the Korean Peninsula is not new. The US tried to do something else under George W. Bush. Then the discussion of the problem was attended by, besides Japan with South Korea, China and Russia. The Bush administration then removed Pyongyang from the list of countries, supporters of terrorism and eased some of the sanctions, North Korea stopped a number of nuclear facilities… You have to understand (according to psaki), that was also wrong.

The four are unofficially called "Asian NATO", and if you can persuade South Korea, the "square" may have a "fifth corner". true, Japan and South Korea have long had a difficult relationship. They worsened even more with the coming to power in South Korea of ​​President Moon Jae-in.. The latter actualized the problem of "women for consolation" (sex slaves) during the Japanese occupation of Korea, although 2015 year, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and then South Korean President Park Geun-hye proclaimed, that this problem is closed: Japan made an official apology and sent almost 9 million dollars to the War Crimes Victims Fund. And at the same time tightened control over the export of certain types of nanomaterials to South Korea, required for the production of semiconductors and displays.

Washington and Seoul have different understanding of security issues. North Korean intercontinental Hwaseons became a headache for Washington, covering any point in the USA, and the heavy artillery of the North Koreans will reach Seoul. Therefore, in Seoul, the least excitement around the "human rights" among the neighbors. When Moon Jae In's presidential term expires next spring, the most anti-Japanese president of South Korea, and Suga, who doesn't want to deal with Moon, will leave the post of Prime Minister of Japan, for the US administration, problems on the Korean Peninsula will not diminish. After all, it is unknown, Will the intractable Kim Jong-un want to meet with the President of the United States again?.
