The Strategy Behind South Korea's Outreach to Southeast Asia

The Strategy Behind South Korea's Outreach to Southeast Asia

The agreement was disclosed as Moon and Chinese President Xi Jinping met Saturday on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam.

The summit was initially scheduled for 30 minutes but lasted 43 minutes. It's for this reason that the worldwide community must pressure North Korea into talks as soon as possible, including through use of sanctions, Moon said Tuesday, per Reuters.

Abe and Xi smiled and nodded during the opening remarks of their own meeting, which Abe later described as frank, relaxed and friendly.

Barring any unforeseen mishap, the survey results will be published on by the ABS on 15 November 2017 . That would give the Senate time to debate the bill before it goes to the House of Representatives.

On the Thaad issue, Xi emphasized that the October 31 agreement between the two countries marked a "new start and a good beginning".

Still, Moon's planned visit to China coincides with an improvement in relations after the nations agreed to put aside a dispute over the deployment of a USA missile shield on South Korean soil.

The nuclear ambitions of North Korea will likely top the agenda of a Moon-Xi meeting. "Let us both work hard to recover lost time". "Just as South Korea stands firm on the comfort women issue and continues to deal with it separately even while seeking to fix relations with Japan, this only means China is using a two-track strategy on THAAD". Xi reportedly said he would try to visit, and that in case he is unable to attend he will send a high-level delegation instead. But though the North has said it may be open to dialogue, it hasn't responded to invitations to take part in the Olympics. Moon reiterated his stance that now was the time to increase pressure on North Korea so that it would come to talks.

On Nov. 9, South Korean President Moon Jae-in unveiled his "New Southern Policy", aimed at deepening relations with the countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN. "On Oct. 31, South Korea and China drew up guidelines of a sort that signify a new point of departure, but this can not be seen as a complete "agreement.' It's a makeshift agreement stating that China will decide on its position according to South Korea's attitude in the future".
