Washington behind tensions on Korean Peninsula

China Daily | Updated: 2023-04-18 00:00

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula are still escalating and there is no sign that the antagonism between the United States and the Republic of Korea on the one side and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the other will ease in the near future. How to break the stalemate and ease the tensions should be a concern of the international community.

The launching of a new model of long-range ballistic missile by the DPRK on Thursday sends the message that it will never give in to the threats of the US, which has done nothing to convince the DPRK that it will gain the security guarantee it needs to give up its nuclear program.

Just as Liu Xiaoming, China's special representative on Korean Peninsula affairs, said in an interview with Agence France-Presse on Friday, the US is acting with intent and is clear about how the DPRK will respond to what it is doing with the ROK. To be exact, escalating tensions on the peninsula is what the US needs to strengthen its alliances with the ROK and Japan, similar to the way in which it provoked the Ukraine conflict to tighten its grip on the transatlantic alliance.
