Abstract

The fundamental question about the purpose of diplomacy regarding North Korea has come into stark focus. For a time Park Geun-hye seemed to be redoubling her efforts to find a diplomatic path forward to the “taebuk,” which some translate as “jackpot” of reunification. These were accompanied by her “peace and security initiative,” proposed to diplomatic partners as a blueprint. However much it needed to be jointly clarified, for diplomacy in Northeast Asia. Meanwhile, the U.S. position toward North Korea and, notably China, hardened. Its diplomacy over two decades toward North Korea was, arguably, directed mostly at China, but now doubts had increased that the limited cooperation realized in managing North Korea warranted efforts to find common ground with China on maritime disputes and on other tense questions, where U.S. allies and partners pressed for a more vigorous response. Meanwhile, attention continued to center on how Chinese thinking about diplomacy toward the North Korean challenge is evolving. (The rest omitted)
