China and North Korea
Therefore, policies should be characterized more by continuity than change. Accordingly, China views the two Koreas through the prism of great power politics combined with more pragmatic approaches. As the U. This paper proceeds by first outlining the different characterizations of China-North Korea relations.
Broadly speaking, four different characterizations of China-North Korea relations have existed in Chinese strategic thinking over time. The first conforms to conventional wisdom of China and North Korea as allies. They fought shoulder to shoulder in the Korean war against the United States. The Sino-North Korean Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance, signed in , possesses a military intervention clause to defend each other if a third party intervenes militarily.
In this relationship, they are described as blood-shared allies. However, this view of relations has diminished since China adopted the reform and opening policies in and established a formal relationship with South Korea in The second categorization is one of traditional good neighborly and friendly relations, which has been the formal description of relations by Chinese authorities since the mids.
Accordingly, North Korea falls under the same category as these countries. The third description is that of strategic partnership. Under the harsh security environment of the Cold War, China and North Korea maintained friendly and cooperative relations through their respective strategic calculations despite their level of trust being low and lack of special liaison between them. Thus, the strategic competition between the U.
Fourth is normal state-to-state relations. The key concept in this description is that of national interest. Former President Hu Jintao revealed his determination to establish normal state-to-state relations in front of North Korean military leader Cho Myeong-rok, who visited Beijing in after reviewing China-North Korea relations. While Cho emphasized traditional blood-shared relations, Hu promptly corrected him. No single view has necessarily been dominant in the policies.
Reflecting its changing power and influence, strategic ideas in China have also evolved and diversified. Revolutionary foreign policies were dominant for roughly three decades of the Mao Zedong period. This was followed by the opening up and reform policies during the next three decades under Deng, Zhang, and Hu. Identifying China as a great power, Xi commenced the era of great power foreign policy: China was no longer merely a continental or regional power, but a global power.
Chinese strategic thinking on the Korean Peninsula has accordingly changed and is no longer monolithic. The traditional image of a top-down approach to Chinese decision-making has also caused a misunderstanding of Chinese foreign policy.
Traditionalist hawks argue that China must consider North Korea as one of its key allies to mitigate U. Accordingly, this group regards South Korea as a hostile state allied with the U. This school constituted the mainstream view before Hu Jintao. This constituted a major line of Chinese foreign policy during the Jiang Zemin and into the Hu Jintao era.
On this basis, they sought to transform the relationship with North Korea into a normal state-to-state relationship. During the Hu era, the majority of think-tank experts in Beijing belonged to this group. As such, it is surmised that Chinese interests may collide head-on with those of the U. The ideas of this group gradually gained traction among the Chinese populace and elites around the time of the 17th Party Congress in , even before the financial crisis.
They are likely to oppose unilateral intervention in North Korea either by the U. Accordingly, competition with the U. In this respect, the Korean Peninsula is seen as a locus of strategic competition with the U. The evolving strategic thinking of China will certainly continue to influence its North Korea policy as well as future relations between China and South Korea. However, the latter school of thought pays relatively more attention to the strategic interests and role of China as a great power.
However, after the fourth nuclear test in January , policy under Xi moved increasingly towards imposing sanctions. Noteworthy too is how those supporting abandonment of North Korea have also increased; under Hu, almost no one supported this view publicly. Such policy changes appear to reflect changing tides in academia and among experts, possessing their own regional, academic, functional, and generational foundations.
They compete against each other to secure policy access and expand influence. Thus, China under Xi Jinping is not shy of wielding its power bluntly if it feels its national interests to be damaged or threatened. At the same time, it is obvious that Beijing has become more active regarding the North Korea nuclear issue and proposed in a new dual track mechanism to stimulate parallel dialogues to pursue a peace treaty and denuclearization simultaneously.
On the one hand, China hopes to use North Korea issues, namely denuclearization, as a means for cooperation between the U. On the other hand, China is also afraid of the growing influence of South Korea, and eventually the U. Beijing has reinterpreted its strategy for the Korean Peninsula more ambitiously than before. Beijing has sought to extend its influence over the whole Korean Peninsula instead of just protecting its buffer zone. The U. In the middle of intensifying U. China has therefore sought to some extent to recover its relationship with North Korea.
In sum, China is unwilling to abandon North Korea as a strategic ally. Should the strategic competition with the United States intensify, China might tighten its strategic interests with North Korea even further. The dual track approach that China has proposed has been broadly accepted as a guiding principle to North Korea denuclearization negotiations.
However, the prospects for denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula are not necessarily optimistic. Where the focus is more on strategic competition, neither the U. Furthermore, despite the recent thawing of relations and intensified cooperation between China and North Korea, there remains a deficit of trust in bilateral relations. By affirming self-reliance policies in the recently held Central Party plenum in December , North Korea seeks to minimize the negative influence of the U.
Should North Korea return to its brinkmanship approach, however, Beijing will be forced to reexamine its current North Korea policy in line with its new identity as a great power. The Moon Jae-in government, for its part, has not yet given up on talks with North Korea and resolving the denuclearization issue through dialogue. If these efforts should fail, however, South Korea will find itself at the crossroads between self-armament and further strengthening its alliance with the U.
The prevailing wisdom has been that China was not likely to take any initiative on Korean Peninsula issues; instead it would seek to maintain the status quo. Since , however, relations have improved as Beijing seeks to provide modest diplomatic and economic support to North Korea while advocating a dual-track peace and denuclearization process.
In the near future, China will pay close attention to the evolving regional security dynamics, in particular U. While neither the U. Looking ahead, the U.

The China–North Korea Relationship
China and North Korea pp Cite as.

The Sino-Soviet split not only reshaped the global geopolitical landscape, but also had a profound impact on the international communist movement. The socialist camp crumbled and member states, including North Korea, were forced to take sides. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.

Famine in North Korea: Markets, Aid, and Reform
Базу данных защищали трехуровневое реле мощности и многослойная система цифровой поддержки. Она была спрятана под землей на глубине 214 футов для защиты от взрывов и воздействия магнитных полей. Вся деятельность в комнате управления относилась к категории Совершенно секретно. УМБРА, что было высшим уровнем секретности в стране. Никогда еще государственные секреты США не были так хорошо защищены.
Лицо в шрамах и следах оспы. Два безжизненных глаза неподвижно смотрят из-за очков в тонкой металлической оправе. Человек наклонился, и его рот оказался у самого уха двухцветного. Голос был странный, какой-то сдавленный: - Adonde file. Куда он поехал? - Слова были какие-то неестественные, искаженные.
ГЛАВА 19 - А вдруг кто-то еще хочет заполучить это кольцо? - спросила Сьюзан, внезапно заволновавшись. - А вдруг Дэвиду грозит опасность. Стратмор покачал головой: - Больше никто не знает о существовании кольца. Именно поэтому я и послал за ним Дэвида. Я хотел, чтобы никто ничего не заподозрил.
У нее перехватило дыхание.
Здесь не было ни души, если не считать уборщицы, драившей пол. На противоположной стороне зала служащая закрывала билетную кассу компании Иберия эйр-лайнз. Беккеру это показалось дурным предзнаменованием.
Их количество удваивалось каждую минуту. Еще немного, и любой обладатель компьютера - иностранные шпионы, радикалы, террористы - получит доступ в хранилище секретной информации американского правительства. Пока техники тщетно старались отключить электропитание, собравшиеся на подиуме пытались понять расшифрованный текст. Дэвид Беккер и два оперативных агента тоже пробовали сделать это, сидя в мини-автобусе в Севилье.
Директор метнул на нее настороженный взгляд, но Мидж уже бежала к аппарату. Она решила включить громкую связь. - Слушаю, Джабба. Металлический голос Джаббы заполнил комнату: - Мидж, я в главном банке данных. У нас тут творятся довольно странные вещи.
Отпусти меня! - попросил Хейл. - Я ничего не сделал. - Ничего не сделал? - вскричала Сьюзан, думая, почему Стратмор так долго не возвращается. - Вы вместе с Танкадо взяли АНБ в заложники, после чего ты и его обвел вокруг пальца.
