Biden's visit to South Korea and Japan has new tricks to engage in "small circles"


2022-05-19: [Article Link Xinhua Society Beijing on May 19th, Biden visited Korea Day. Xinhua Agency Reporter United States President Biden will visit Korea and Japan from 20 to 24, the first trip to Asia since Biden took office last January. Biden will also attend the US-Japan-India “Quadripartite Mechanism” summit and launch the “Indo-Pacific Economic Framework” during the visit. According to analysts, Biden's mission was aimed at consolidating the alliance and continued to accelerate its so-called Indo-Pacific strategy through the “quartet” summit. The “Indo-Pacific Economic Framework” launched by Biden has raised a lot of questions in Korea and the US's attempts to shut down the exclusionary “clubs” are doomed to fail. Do you want to play the economic card? The Assistant United States President for National Security Affairs, Sullivan 18, said at a White House regular press conference that Biden would have the opportunity to “reaffirm and strengthen” the important security alliance between the United States and Korea Day and to deepen economic partnership with both countries. Sullivan stated that, during the visit to Korea, Biden would meet with President Yoon Suk-yeol of Korea and with the scientific community and leaders of manufacturing industries in Korea. The White House press secretary Jean-Pierre confirmed to the media that Biden would not travel to the Korean-Korean military boundary area while in Korea. On the day of the visit, Biden would meet with Japanese Prime Minister Aritoyama and consult on a range of issues, including deepening cooperation between the two countries in the area of economic security. Japan has recently reported that the Governments of Japan and the United States are considering deepening their cooperation in the area of economic security and security, and intend to issue a joint statement following the meeting between the leaders of the two countries. According to the Korean newspaper Kyotsu News, economic and security issues are high on the agenda of Biden’s mission for the US. The US diplomatic security presence in Europe following the conflict in Russia-Ukraine is concentrated in the context of Biden’s visit to Korea Day, highlighting America’s desire to accelerate its so-called “Indo-Pacific Strategy.” "Little Circles." The Biden government released this February’s long-thought-out document, the US-ASEAN Leaders’ Conference, held in Washington, D.C., from 12 to 13 this month, during which the United States tried to market its “Indian Strategy” in an attempt to provoke antagonism between countries in the region. According to analysts, in the so-called Indian-Pacific strategy, the United States claims to promote “free and openness” in the region, but in fact through the “trilateral security partnership” — the “trilateral mechanism” — constructs a closed and exclusive “close circle”; claims that strengthening regional security creates a serious risk of nuclear proliferation and undermines regional peace and stability; and claims that promoting regional prosperity actually provokes antagonistic confrontation between the countries of the region. The “Indian and Pacific Economic Framework” is essentially an extension of the “Indian and Pacific Strategy” in the economic sphere. According to the US-Indian Strategy document, the “Indian and Pacific Economic Framework” aims to develop new modes of trade, manage the digital economy and cross-border data in accordance with open principles, promote healthy and secure supply chains, and invest in clean energy with participating countries. Michael Green, Senior Vice-President for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies of the United States think that the United States proposal for an “Indian-Pacific economic framework” will not convince the region, and that the role of the “quartet” in maintaining security in the “Indian region” will be limited. Although Korea and Japan have indicated that they will join the “Indo-Pacific Economic Framework”, the Japanese media have pointed out that the specific content and operating methods of the Framework have so far been very opaque, with prospects or difficulties. A report by the Japan Agency for Trade Renewal states that the United States will hold mid-term congressional elections in November of this year, and that the ability of Biden to allocate sufficient political capital to this economic framework will be severely tested in view of the high level of popular resentment caused by the disruption of the United States domestic supply chain, labour shortages and rising inflation. Toshio Takahashi, Research Manager, Japan Institute for International Trade and Investment, said that the “Indo-Pacific Economic Framework” was not a trade agreement with the substance of market opening, tariff concessions, etc., and was not attractive to some countries. That's what I'm trying to do. Analysts have pointed out that open cooperation and mutually beneficial win-win are the common expectations of the people of the Asia-Pacific region, and that the recent “crowding” by the United States of America for the sake of self-serving groups clearly runs counter to that desire. Kim Liangji, head of the Department of Economic and Commercial Development and Research of the National Foreign Office of Korea, said that if the United States persisted in seeking to construct an “Indian-Pacific economic framework”, it would undermine the ASEAN-sponsored and-led Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (RCEP), contrary to the Biden Government's so-called commitment to value the Alliance's path and to respect the centrality of ASEAN in regional affairs. The Director of the Korea Institute for East Asia said that the “cold war mentality” had long been obsolete, but that there were still individual countries that adhered to it in an attempt to incite antagonism and create conflict disputes. Tokyo University's Institute of Social Sciences, Professor Tokio, believes that if the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework was intended to restrict trade with China, it would not bring any economic benefits to its members, but would only restrict trade. In his view, few countries would join it, and the impact of this framework on the regional economy would be limited.
