the border has always been relatively quiet. Although the two border guards have shot past the smuggling of those events, but will try to avoid causing casualties. After all, in the event of injury, then, is a very troublesome thing. However, a few days ago, residents of Dandong City, Liaoning Province, on suspicion of cross-border activities in border trade has been the Korean border guards shot, three people were killed and one wounded. North Korea to do so, it is going too far.
in good faith that we may be able to guess, North Korea on high alert in the border region has always been a practice. Tension in the international and domestic situation, the defense will have a clear border mobility and patrol, and even fire the shot and there are many things happening. From this perspective, North Korea may be related to the recent shooting incident resulting in Tian An intense North-South relations, and if that were the case, it is indeed an unfortunate shooting incident, but also regrettable.
In any case, living on the frontiers of life is important, even if it is because of the crime of smuggling, it should have some legal investigation process, and will not be shot and killed. In this regard, in addition to the solemn representations through diplomatic channels, the DPRK should come forward to make the necessary interpretation and response to the compensation of damages, the punitive punishment. This is a Korean basic account of the Chinese people.
North Korea should probably understand that if this matter handled properly, will impact on North Korea in the Chinese folk the impression, long past, will ultimately affect North Korea’s interests in China.
course, the matter should be limited to the things themselves, instead of rising to the relationship between the two countries. China-DPRK relations is now the focus of global concern, some people are hoping something happens, provoke or disrupt the development of China-DPRK relations, thereby affecting the overall situation of Northeast Asia, both China and the DPRK is reluctant to see.
In fact, smuggling people in border areas on the shooting incident, the Russian border, Russia and even in many countries towards the border between the border have happened. The root cause of these events is regional economic imbalances, the border is not strict governance, rather than rising to the level of bilateral relations go. Therefore, this incident how to manage the border to China and the DPRK put forward new requirements. The current Sino-Korean border trade in the most prosperous period ever. Thanks to China’s long-standing policy of the Frontier. However, in recent years, rapid economic development of Dandong, the Korean side of the economy is still lagging behind the people’s standard of living is relatively low. This makes some of the high incidence of illegal border crossings. Some Chinese officials conduct border trade across the border to North Korea, some Korean people but also across the border to China, these events are criminal acts, should be curbed.
if left unchecked, will affect the stability of the border, border residents will be infringement of the interests of the two countries and life. On the DPRK, the need for appropriate education of national and governance in a timely manner to stop the illegal cross-border workers, should also strengthen the management of its border guards to prevent similar incidents from happening again. The Chinese side is concerned, but also the need for border residents to strengthen guidance, education and law-abiding people in border areas of consciousness.
more importantly, China and the DPRK should be illegal and the fight against border crime for more consultation, cooperation, according to the joint fight against the current border violations. This is the current Sino-Korean border to avoid similar incidents in the fundamental law, and only thus can we truly maintain the normal development of China-DPRK friendly relations.
