What attitude should China take towards North Korea?

Popularity 6Viewed 4774 times 2016-6-2 17:02 |Personal category:social concern|System category:News| challenge, theworld, towards, between, should

The relationship between China and North Korea is facing a challenge. North Korea has been trapped in a vicious circle since it was sanctioned by United Nations, for it has made the third time of nuclear test. Absolutely, North Korea is wrong to do what peace-loving people in the world do not like.

       As its neighbor, China faces a dilemma, to support it or to break with it. China takes a clear-cut stand that China do not allow North Korea to have nuclear weapon and join in the line to sanction North Korea. Meanwhile, China always shows mercy because of brotherhood and neighborhood with North Korea. China has been criticized by some countries for not taking responsibility to have this little brother keep calm. To break with North Korea is impossible for China. China always thinks highly of its neighbor.

       What should China do? Do you have any ideas?

Read my previous blogs and replies to this question.
All hopes for peace and stability regarding this country rest with China. China has supported the DPRK because this country forms a buffer between American led influences in South Korea and the Chinese mainland borders. However, with China's drive to develop as a world-wide power in industry and business the country faces a dilemma. It now has a country on its borders that threatens everyone, led by a ridiculous fanatic who rules by fear and indoctrination. It can only be a Chinese influence over time, that can attempt to develop the DPRK into a country acceptable to the world, regardless of what its politics are.

To be honest,it's a difficult thing for China to stand up and be counted.But we have to admit that it's of great importance get along with our neighborhood.Every country is a small part of the whole world,every country plays different role but every part is essential.So every country are eager to keep a good relationship with others.
   On the one hand,the distance between China and North Korea is short,it's easy to be influenced by it.So if the social situation of North Korea is not peaceful,the condition of China will not be as good as now.China has taken measures to reduce this kind of damage and tried to keep good relationship with North Korea.After all,it seems to be impossible to break with North Korea in such a background of the world.But  we are not supposed to follow the opinions and actions of North Korea,we should put our own profits in the most important position.
    On the other hand,some countries blame us as we don't prevent our neighborhood North Korea using weapons and don't make every effort to calm it down.There is no doubt that every country care more about themselves,they try their best to protect their benefits.

To change a person is difficult. To change a country is impossible. What we can do is to be more patient. Helping North Korea with developing its economy and education might be a way to get it closer to the world.

They act like a naughty boy. Sometimes, they cry for hunger, sometimes, for pain.

It seems that North Korea doesn't know he should change something in his mind and is lonely in this world, while so many countries are worrying about it.

So China is in a position of dilemma. Because of this China is criticized to be one without standpoint. Do you agree?

China has always been a peaceful attitude to other countries, all people like peace, so to avoid the war is the most important.
      China and North Korea have always been in a state of peaceful coexistence, and China has been in a state of maintaining its neighbors. China needs to choose a position now, it is a particularly difficult thing.
     In my opinion,Our country should make an objective decision and choose a way to ensure the peace of the world.

China wants his little brother to keep calm, but failed. North Korea changes the bottom line of the world, testing nuke bomb.

I think, for the North Korean nuclear issue, China's position is very difficult to choose.
           It  can be considered from two aspects.
           On the one hand, China believes that North Korea's comparison of the thought of aging, but China does not want it with United, and North Korea is the buffer zone, so we can support North Korea.
          On the other hand, we also to North Korea's status was not satisfied, but also hope that North Korea not to bring trouble to us, so we can against North Korea.
          However, I think, in international relations, no forever friends, no permanent enemies, so the national interests only forever.

Stalin would also find it difficult to deal with if he were here.

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
