Abstract

Three triangles are featured in recent analyses of the changing diplomacy centered on the Korean Peninsula. While Russia is taking the initiative in trying to shift the northern triangle, and Japan is trying a new approach straining the alliance triangle, China and South Korea are preparing for the long run as each keeps close watch on the United States within the triangle that matters most. The US strategy—misleadingly belittled as strategic patience—endorses South Korea’s approach and welcomes China’s increasing pressure on North Korea and priority for South Korea, but it is wary of China’s primary objectives when a new stage will be reached with the potential to lead toward reunification. The focus has shifted from restarting the Six-Party Talks or deterring provocations by North Korea to maneuvering within triangles to shape the geopolitical environment when the North Korean leadership decides to move in one direction or another.
