Plenty of carrots, spared sticks have spoilt North Korea’

Korean press views on N. Korea’s 4th nuclear test

Many Korean-language newspapers and other forms of mass communications media in the Republic of Korea (ROK) regretted that the ROK had neglected in properly dealing with North Korea with the result that the North had continued to develop the dangerous nuclear weapons.

North Korea announced on Jan. 6, 2016 that it had successfully carried out its test explosion of a hydrogen bomb. It was the fourth test explosion of nuclear bombs that the N. Korean regime has carried out so far.

On this development, the ROK, the United States and the rest of the Free World urged China to do something to stop N. Korea’s “dangerously playing with fire” as they believed that China had a great measure of influence on N. Korea.

China obviously knows it, and appears to be much annoyed at the latest development as the nuclear bomb testing took place obviously without an adequate advance notice even to China who the North Korean regime considered to be its best ally in the world.

Many of the S. Korean media deplored the lack of timely action to prevent N. Korea from developing the dangerous nuclear weapons.

Here are excerpts from the recent Korean-language media analyses of the situation (Unofficial English translation done by The Korea Post):

▲President Kim Jong-Un of North Korea (left) is all smiles after North Korea’s successful launching of a nuclear bomb-carrying missile early this year. However, it is causing a great deal of common in the entire world with most countries denouncing it as a great threat to the world peace.

Dong-A Ilbo, independent Korean-language daily, Jan. 9, 2016:

The world is watching President Xi Jinping of China following N. Korea’s explosion of a hydrogen bomb. This is because many people believe that cooperation with China is essential in controlling N. Korea from attempting a dangerous adventure.

Secretary of State John Kerrey of the United States reportedly called Foreign Minister Wang Yi of China and told him that China’s formula to control N. Korean nuclear weapons development had failed and urged him to think up a new measure that would work. 

Minister of Foreign Affairs Yun Byun-se of the ROK succeeded in contacting Wang after two days of futile endeavor, and asked China to join the international community to discourage the N. Korean regime from developing nuclear bombs.

▲President Park (left) shakes hands with President Xi in Seoulon Nov. 10, 2014. President Park is considered by many political experts as being most strongly interested in the promotion of relations and friendship with China?even at the risk of Korea’s close relations and cooperation with her traditional allies such as the United States and Japan.

N. Korea literally cannot live without the help of China, especially the supply of crude oil, food and money from China. Reports say that the US has asked China to cut off her financial pipeline to N. Korea as in the case of the Secondary Boycott formula that the US used on Iran, which worked.

Reports indicate that China told the US to have composure and that China does not have a key to the N. Korean problem.
