Abstract

Pessimism pervades most discussions of the security situation in Northeast Asia, particularly on the Korean peninsula where efforts to weaken the North Korean regime and stop its nuclear weapons program have failed. This article proposes a new approach to regional and Korean security: creation of a Northeast Asia Security Dialogue Mechanism structured so as to respond to any number of disputes and issues before they reach the point of serious confrontations. Policy changes are proposed in the U.S.-South Korea alliance and by North Korea to promote agreement on a dialogue mechanism. The advantages for these parties, as well as for China, Japan, and Russia, in having a security dialogue mechanism are also discussed. North Korea’s nuclear weapons should probably not be the NEASDM’s first order of business. (The rest omitted)
