South Korea Enlists China For Help with North Korea’s Aggression

Yonhap News

During the South Korea-China bilateral meeting on the 26th, President Yoon Suk Yeol requested Li Qiang, the Premier of the State Council of China, to play a role as a fortress of peace as threats from North Korea continue to escalate.

It was reported that Yoon expressed his concerns about “North Korea’s nuclear development, the ongoing violation of UN Security Council resolutions, and the continued military cooperation with Russia,” during the meeting with Li at the Presidential Office in Yongsan that afternoon.

A high-ranking official from the Presidential Office told reporters, “Although there are numerous issues such as the security problem on the Korean Peninsula, peace in the region, South China Sea, and East China Sea, we didn’t have specific conversations on each issue separately.” He explained, “The immediate threat is North Korea’s nuclear threat, and President Yoon specifically mentioned this.”

The official said, “Although there are various issues such as abductees in North Korea and security issues between South Korea and North Korea, we spent a lot of time discussing the people’s livelihoods and economic cooperation due to time constraints.” He added that there would be plenty of opportunities to exchange opinions at the South Korea-China-Japan trilateral summit dinner held that evening and at the summit on the 27th.

He also noted, “The launch of North Korea’s reconnaissance satellite using an ICBM is imminent, and they could mix in other missile provocations.” He vowed, “Even after the South Korea-China-Japan summit, our government will firmly maintain its security readiness.”

It was reported that there was no discussion of Yoon’s visit to China or Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Korea at the South Korea-China meeting that day.

He said, “Today was a meeting with the Chinese Premier. There was no specific mention of President Xi Jinping’s visit to Korea or our President’s visit to China.” He added, “We can continue to discuss these issues when opportunities arise in the future.”
