In this regard, Shanghai Institute of International Studies Korean expert on Yingli, said Yin Ping Island shelling after the Korean attitude than in the past there have been some subtle changes, South Korea had previously been more patient, but North Korea is more hard-line , but this is just the opposite. North Korea’s attitude can be seen as “to avoid the limelight.”
in Yingli that, for response to domestic political pressures to consider, South Korean Lee Myung-bak government’s attitude is shown by the current unprecedented tough. North and South Korea each took place in November, after shelling, South Korea held a massive ROK-US speech, Lee Myung-bak delivered a hard-line speech, the new secretary of defense has come up with a replacement of the new rules of engagement, which are different from the past. North Korea then if still take tough measures, the situation in the Korean peninsula may lose control. “Faced with this situation, North Korea wisely chose not to confront the way, greater use of diplomacy to the deal.”
in Yingli said that if the two Koreas are tough words, The situation in the Korean peninsula is more dangerous, but from the attitude of North Korea, the possibility of further escalation of the situation is not great.
However, Li pointed out in welcome, and now the whole international atmosphere on the Korean increasingly severe.

Although there is no addition to North Korea against South Korea in a positive way, but does not rule out the future in other parts of playing the “outside” possibility. Thus, overall, the tension on the Korean Peninsula is likely to continue for some time.
