Korean Peninsula can't stand the vicious cycle

(People's Daily Online)

07:54, December 18, 2012

The launch of Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite by the DPRK is but a "routine move" that highlights the security plight on the Korean Peninsula. The DPRK already launched a satellite earlier this year while South Korea and the United States enhanced their ballistic missile range and load, making security situation on the Korean Peninsula more fragile.

Those concerned about the situation on the Korean Peninsula understand that here never lacks the impetus for "change". Even if these many changes are not enough to break the general pattern for the moment, there are always opportunities to "take the initiative" in the subtle evolution process.

Security pattern built on the "strategic mutual doubt" and the "strategy of confrontation" is bound to be unsustainable. The seemingly most stable "nuclear balance of power" cannot deter a cold war of bipolar confrontation. Korean Peninsula is overwhelmed by a vicious cycle, which is the basic national recognition to explore the security situation on the Peninsula. China supports solution of the problem through dialogue and consultation, and opposes any behavior that could lead to tensions, and firmly opposes any armed conflict.

Such stance embodies the due responsibility as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, embodies the due concerns about Korean Peninsula as a close neighbor, and also emphasizes the unbearable vicious cycle in the Peninsula. Having grasped these points, it is easy to understand China’s stand on the DPRK’s launch of Kwangmyongsong-3: It has the right to the peaceful use of space as well as the obligation to comply with the relevant resolutions of the U.N. Security Council; the Security Council needs to be careful and prudent in carrying out related reactions.

Subtle, complex, and dangerous, these are the key words in describing the evolution history of the security situation on the Korean Peninsula. The reasonable voice warns people that in the critical moment one should remain calm and restrained.

Prevention of the deterioration of the security situation requires solution of the problem in a comprehensive and systematic manner. The achievement of denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula, normalization of relations between the countries concerned, and establishment of a peace and security mechanism in Northeast Asia are important aspects in creating peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

Whenever the security situation on the Korean peninsula suffers a severe blow, China always emphasizes this point and appeals to restart the six-party talks as soon as possible. China hopes that the parties concerned can calm down and understand its earnest intention and profound meaning.
