Can North Korea’s Nuclear Problem Be Solved?

Is there a hope for restarting the stalled six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear program? This question is more frequently asked by experts at international conferences, including the Northeast Asia Peace and Security Mechanism event held this May in northwestern city of Yanji, the seat of the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in eastern Jilin province, People's Republic of China...

Korean Peninsula: Choice between Peace and Escalation

Normally tensions run high in the Korean Peninsula when US starts annual joint military exercises with South Korea. Then the time comes for attempts to find diplomatic solutions. This is the usual pattern. It was different this year...

A North Korean Trio’s Quick Spurt down South

...Until Washington turns away from a paradigm based on regime change in the DPRK as soon as possible and at any cost, the door leading toward an improved relationship between the two Koreas will quickly begin to close.  And yet it is the Koreans themselves who will have the last word in determining the fate of their divided people...

Korean Unification: A Fleeting Opportunity

The governments of North and South Korea continue to repeat the mantra that they are committed to the idea of unifying their divided people. But as years go by, the tension between Seoul and Pyongyang continues, and there is no progress toward achieving that objective. According to public opinion polls, most South Koreans under the age of 40 are not interested in the unification of the peninsula. Although there is no public discussion, this critically important sector of the South Korean society is against any such plans. Decades have passed since the country was partitioned. The number of families separated by the demilitarized zone (DMZ) has dwindled and emotions have cooled. Many young people in the South increasingly see North Korea as a foreign country...

Joe Biden Wraps-up Asia-Pacific Trip: Rebalancing Policy Going Strong (I)

Mideast conflicts, Snowden revelations and domestic woes, the U.S. remains true to its course of being a dominant Asia-Pacific power committed to increasing America's influence in the region as a hedge against the increasingly assertive China... Recently the US diplomatic activities in the region are on the rise. This includes the October visits by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and State Secretary John Kerry, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew visiting the region last month, the just wrapped-up Biden’s trip, as well as the Obama’s planned visit in April. Tensions in the region are at their highest in years...

The Eurasian Economic Union and Its International Relevance

On November 18, 2011 the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed the Declaration of Eurasian Economic Integration, and on May 29, 2012 in Astana, at a meeting of the heads of the Customs Union member states, a program for preparing a draft of a Eurasian Economic Union Treaty was approved... The final stage in creating a new economic union will be the signing of the Treaty in May 2014 by the presidents of the member states of the new Union.  In the second half of 2014 the Treaty on the Creation of a Eurasian Economic Union is to be ratified by the parliaments of the states acceding to the Treaty, and on January 1, 2015 it is to come into force...

The reasons for the crisis on the Korean Peninsula

A peaceful co-existence with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea does not figure in America's plans. Rather, they are looking to eliminate the state. This is why there is a predetermined state of permanent conflict on the Korean Peninsula, a cyclical development of the situation from acute crisis to relative «remission» and back again. The actions of the West with regard to North Korea result in a vicious catch-22. Calls to stop the nuclear programme, thereby stopping the violation of the principles of the non-proliferation regime of weapons of mass destruction, are often used to cover up the realisation of a hidden agenda – regime change in North Korea...

North Korea: Sabre Rattling Escalates to State of War

On March 30 North Korea declared that it is in a «state of war» with South Korea. It warned that any provocation by Seoul and Washington will trigger an all-out nuclear war... Meanwhile, an inter-Korea joint industrial complex, which lies inside North Korea, was operating normally. The Kaesong Industrial Complex, which lies 10 kilometers (six miles) inside North Korea, was built by the South in 2004 as a symbol of cross-border cooperation. Around 53,000 North Koreans work at plants for 120 South Korean firms at the complex, which serves as a crucial source of hard currency for the impoverished state. Using North Korea's cheap labor, the Kaesong complex produced $470 million US worth of goods last year. No military action on the part of North Korea is possible till the facility functions. Perhaps economic advantage it gives will outweigh the predisposition to military solution...

Korea: North and South on Verge of War

The tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been escalating these days. A flow of tough rhetoric exchanges is unrelenting, Seoul and Pyongyang promise to wipe each other off from the face of the earth... North Korea is as hostile as it can be, but so far it’s only words. The other side is trying not to lag behind in exerting psychological pressure, but it is also taking practical steps that directly provoke further escalation of the stand-off. The US has taken a decision to deploy additional interceptors in Alaska against the North Korean missiles, for the first time in many years US nuclear capable strategic bombers imitated nuclear strikes against North Korea during the recently held Key Resolve/Foal Eagle exercises – it’s not just rhetoric...

North Korea Ups Ante (I)

On February 12 North Korea conducted a successful underground test at the Punggye-ri nuclear site (the north-western part of the country). It was a third test after two failures conducted in strict defiance of UN resolutions. The event is linked to launching a long-range rocket in December 2012. Back then it triggered U.N. sanctions, backed by Russia and China. North Korea described the test as a «preliminary measure» and threatened «stronger» actions unless the US ends its «hostility». The move brings it closer to developing a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a long-range missile and possibly bringing Guam, the Hawaii and even the US West Coast within the striking range...

NATO Winds Up Emergency Meeting on Plans to Bolster Turkey’s Security

Amid rising tensions following the air strikes launched by Ankara against Kurdish fighters as well as the Islamic State (IS), and warnings of a civil war breaking out in Turkey, an emergency NATO’s Council meeting took place on July 28 in Brussels under Article 4 of the alliance’s founding treaty to gauge the threat the Islamic State extremist group poses to Turkey, and the actions Turkish authorities are taking in response...
