About the Edition

The end of the Cold War has removed the external restraints placed on the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People"s Republic of Korea that in the past have proved to be a barrier to unification of the two states on the Korean peninsula. An inter-Korea Cold War lingers on, frustrating both governments plans for unification of the peninsula. North and South Korea have made unification a major goal of their governments, and they will eventually succeed in unifying the Korean peninsula. Unification of the Korean peninsula removes the primary basis for a US military presence on the peninsula, that of deterring North Korea. Even in the post Cold War context, the Korean peninsula remains an area of strategic importance to the United States, and to Japan, China, and Russia. The United States has enduring political, economic, and security interests in Korea and Northeast Asia. The United States should expand its relations with North Korea which can now be done without damaging relations with South Korea. Unification of the Korean peninsula would reduce tension and the potential for instability, so the United states should work toward that goal. In the post Cold War, multipolar world of competing economic and political interests, a strong unified Korea as an ally would be an asset to the United States in Northeast Asia, particularly if relations between the US, Japan, and China suffer serious setbacks. It would still best serve the interests of the United States to maintain a military presence on the Korean peninsula in cooperation with the unified Korea government.

  differing Korean futures for the United States and the countries of Northeast Asia, not to predict which outcomes were most likely. The symposium was a follow-up to a previous February symposium “North Korea Alternate Futures and Policy Challenges.” The initial scenarios explored two branches: (1).   North Korea would be very wary of any regional structure that, at a time when the United States remains fixated on the Middle East, would allow China to build a neo-tributary regime in the region. The other chief obstacle to a regional peace and security order in Northeast Asia is the United States.

  North Korean provocations have strengthened U.S.-Japan alliance cooperation and served as a catalyst for promoting unprecedented trilateral security cooperation among the United States.   As loathsome as North Korea’s domestic politics are, it is not at all clear that North Korea intends to use its nuclear weapons offensively against the United States or American allies in the northeast Asia. As former National Security Advisor Susan Rice put it recently, the United States can “tolerate” a nuclear North Korea.

While concerned about the DPRK’s nuclear weapons program, the United States had little time or resources to devote entirely to North Korean policy or the study of unification. 21 China, dealing with its own set of problems, also had little incentive to change the security status quo in Northeast Asia or tackle the problem of Korean.

Even if Japan’s Northeast Asia strategies constitute a sub category of its East Asia and Asia-pacific strategies unlike South Korea’s idea of the status of Northeast Asia, Northeast Asia is a region where China, South Korea, North Korea, and Russia share borders and the United States deeply intervenes for its economic and security interests.

In this context, the US has preferred the preservation of the status quo on the Korean Peninsula, while regarding the Korean unification issue as part of South Korea’s sovereign authority. China, which has placed a great emphasis on peace and stability in the East Asia region, also supports the continuance of the status quo on the Korean.

But with North Korea living on borrowed time, now is the time for the United States and the ROK, together with China and Korea’s other neighbors, to discuss and plan for an alternative.

This book assesses the strategic linkages that the Korean Peninsula shares with the Indo-Pacific and provides a succinct picture of issues which will shape the trajectory of the Korean Peninsula in the book analyses how critical actors such as the United States, China, Russia and Japan are caught in a tightly balanced power struggle affecting the Korean Peninsula.

It shows. During the Cold War, the Japan–ROK axis facilitated the American presence as an Asia–Pacific power and security guarantor. In the post–Cold War era, outcomes in the Japan–Korea (united or still divided) relationship remain critical to the shape of future balance of power dynamics in the region, and with it the future American security.

Given that South Korea is one of the United States’ closest allies in Asia and hosts s U.S. troops, however inter-Korean ties evolve, they will have significant implications for U.S. strategic interests in and around the Korean Peninsula.

It fought wars in Northeast and Southeast Asia, established security ties with Japan, South Korea, and other countries.
