North Korea–China Summit Meeting (No.2): China’s President Xi Jinping’s New Plan for the Security in the Korean Peninsula

投稿日:2018年4月1日 更新日:

At the summit meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and China’s President Xi Jinping in Beijing in late March, this year, it is said that President Xi Jinping proposed his new plan for the security in the Korean Peninsula to Kim Jong-un. At present, there exist the so-called six-party talks to discuss the issue of the Korean Peninsula periodically by China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea, and the U.S. However, the talks have not functioned at all for many years. While Xi Jinping’s plan is uncertain, it seems to aim at the international peace treaty among four countries including China, North and South Korea, and the U.S. Consequently, Japan will be excluded from this treaty. It is entirely the opposite of my suggestion that Japan should tackle the issue of the Korean Peninsula trying to avoid China’s influence to the extent possible. This is why I have been insisting that from the Japanese standpoint, the U.S. should go ahead of China and take an initiative with regard to the North Korean issue.
