British media said the Korean crisis to ease mainly due to China (Figure)
11 28, South Korea’s foreign military display by the shelling in the Korean Yin Ping Island K-9 self-propelled howitzer positions. Can be seen from the figure a large number of artillery bunkers were being attacked by shrapnel, bullet holes in the wall covered with debris.
British “Financial Times” on 30 December article, the original title: China to help defuse the Korean crisis in a few days, it seems that the Korean Peninsula from the brink of war, into a new round of dialogue on the full hope. However, North Korea and South Korea over the last week of restraint recently shown willingness to resume six-party talks, perhaps mainly be attributed to China’s efforts, rather than the change in attitude in Seoul.
Renmin University of China International expert Jin said China’s influence “is definitely a factor.” Although Beijing keen to avoid leaving an impression to the outside world, that it is under pressure from the United States to persuade Pyongyang to stop its provocative, but Washington’s influence is obvious. “U.S. Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg visited China two weeks ago, the attitude is very strong, so China has made greater efforts (to persuade North Korea),” Jin said.
This is Beijing’s attitude very different from before. North Korea last month, shelling taeyonpyong, triggering the recent crisis, but Beijing initially refused to condemn Pyongyang. China is not willing to accept South Korea that “ship” sunk by North Korea views the Department.
both China and North Korea isolated and radical allies to maintain a long-standing relationship, but also play the new role of a responsible big country, with the international community and friendly. The transformation of China’s carefully balanced between the two results. China hopes the DPRK buffer using the dominance of the United States in Asia, but worried about Pyongyang’s offensive posture will lead to war and chaos. International crisis in Northeast Asia project director of the monitoring body 斯克莱恩阿 Kalb Rand said: “On North Korea, China the most important consideration is stable, which explains Yin Ping Island last month, after shelling the evolution of Chinese policy.”
Al Brant added: “event just happened, that in the Yellow Sea, China is unlikely to conflict, and thus to focus on the U.S. involvement in the region, but with the escalation of tensions, China began to more concerned about the risk of conflict, are willing to accept further involvement of the United States and urged the DPRK not to overreact. “
watchers say Beijing has been behind the scenes to persuade Pyongyang: Korean Peninsula war is unpopular, and such conflicts dangers are real. It is believed that Chinese officials told the North Korean colleagues, to respond if North Korea, South Korea and the United States will fall into the trap set. While Seoul agreed to restart talks to Beijing sigh of relief, but Beijing has close to resolving the conflict is not fantasy. Jin said: “China’s treatment of the Korean Peninsula and in America’s different than the six-party talks to resolve the problem, but for the control of the crisis.” He believes that Beijing’s long-term goal is to help North Korea’s state ideology in command of the international community transformation normal state, so that the political system changed from a military priority attention economy.
short term, Beijing is concerned the most important thing is, do not let this embarrassing ally undermine the relationship between China and other countries. Al Brandt said: “Chinese leaders will visit the United States the importance of the (China’s handling of North Korea) into a role to play.” ▲ (Author seats Jialin (Kathrin Hille), where Li translated)
