South Korea denies setting up a NATO representative office to be "anti-Russian and anti-China"


2022-06-24: [Chinese Article Link]  South Korea announced on the 22nd day that President Yoon Suk-yeol would attend the NATO Summit at the end of the month and officially set up a South Korean representative office in NATO. Both decisions immediately became the focus of national and international attention in South Korea. Korean presidential figures came out on the same day to clarify that the decision “does not mean that South Korea will turn to anti-Russian and anti-Chinese policies.” In recent times, NATO’s intent to bring its neighbors together to contain China has become increasingly apparent. NATO’s Secretary-General, Stoltenberg, recently announced that this NATO summit would produce a new “strategic concept” document that would set out for the first time a strategy for China, and on 22 February he rewrite “China’s challenge to our values, interests, and security.” In response, Chinese scholars and some sober Korean media have cautioned that the invitation to four Asia-Pacific countries, such as South Korea, at this NATO summit is to bring Asia and the Pacific together to contain China. Instead of contributing to the solution of the Korean nuclear issue, South Korea would undermine peace and stability in the region and its own development. South Korea must be vigilant not to “flame itself”. Let's get rid of the president's office. The President of the Republic of Korea, Yoon Suk-yeol, announced on 22 November that he would attend the NATO summit in Madrid, Spain, from 29 to 30 local time. Kim Saint-Han said that this was the first time that the President of Korea had attended the NATO summit, and that NATO had invited the leaders of four countries – Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand – to attend, and that the other three countries had indicated their willingness to do so. King's Saint-Han summarized the meaning of Yoon Suk-yeol's trip in three ways: first, to strengthen “unity based on liberal and democratic values”, second, to expand the basis of “integrated security” and, third, to respond effectively to new security challenges. Korea's SBS television station, 23, stated that taking advantage of Yoon Suk-yeol's participation in the NATO Summit, it had also decided to formally establish a NATO representation office at NATO headquarters in Brussels, to be co-chaired by the Korean Ambassador to the Netherlands and the European Union. The Korean National Security Room states that there are currently 45 NATO partner countries, 40 of which have established representational offices in NATO, and that, to date, the NATO Asia-Pacific partner (KJUSCANZ) participating in the meeting has only South Korea without a NATO representation. In response to questions from outside that the strengthening of Korea's relations with NATO was a “stabilizing anti-China and anti-Russian policy”, according to MBC TV, Korea's Presidential Office explained that this was a comprehensive security approach and that, in order to deepen its cooperation with NATO partners, “does not mean that Korea will turn to anti-Russian and anti-Chinese policies”. The drums created the Pacific NATO. Although the South Korean government wants to leave Yoon Suk-yeol’s participation in the NATO summit with the “anti-China anti-Russian” relationship, the US and NATO do not think so. US Department of State spokesman 22 said that while not a NATO member, South Korea is an important partner of NATO and should face common challenges side by side. He said that the common challenges facing the US and its allies included not only Russia, but also China. “How will China be included in NATO’s new ‘strategic concept’? Will China continue to be the main threat to NATO’s future? After announcing that this NATO summit would issue a new “strategic concept” that would set out its position on China for the first time, NATO Secretary-General Stoltenberg re-enacted China on 22nd. The official NATO web site, 22, posted an interview with Stoltenberg on the United States Political News Network online, stating that China is not an opponent of NATO, but that NATO must recognize the “security implications” of “China’s rise” and that “China poses some challenges to our values, interests and security”. Since this year, NATO has intensified its efforts to bring Asia-Pacific countries closer together. In April this year, US Secretary of State Blinken expressed support for NATO’s renewed military cooperation with Japan and Australia. The Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, Paul, visited Korea the same month to discuss the advancement of “substantive” military cooperation. On 5 May, Korea announced its admission to the NATO Cooperative Networked Defense Excellence Centre (NATO CyberDefence Centre) as the first full Asian member of the Centre. Some Western media and politicians have also spoken out about NATO's expansion to Asia or the establishment of “Pacific NATO.” Canada's Global Post recently published a column stating that “it is time to add an Asian member to NATO”. The article argues that Japan may not be able to join the peace constitution, and that the appropriate option would be South Korea. The US Republican Senator Samber of Peace, Sas, spoke at the Reagan Library in California a day ago, arguing that the US led the creation of the Pacific NATO. “Korea was invited to the NATO summit in order to contain China”, the Korean newspaper Central Daily stated that the NATO summit was intended to demonstrate, on the one hand, that the US-Western “enhanced solidarity” reinforced the common position of pressure on Russia, and, on the other hand, that the summit invited four Asia-Pacific countries to the summit in order to make it clear to the outside world that the West would not relax its vigilance against China even in the case of the Russian-Ukraine conflict. Korea should not be “burned” On 23 June, the spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Wang Wenbin, stated at a press conference that NATO, while a North Atlantic military organization, had gone to the Asia-Pacific region in recent years in an attempt to replicate the European bloc's confrontations into Asia-Pacific. This is a dangerous move that will draw the attention of the Asia-Pacific countries and the international community to a high degree of vigilance and firm opposition. We urge NATO to stop its ideological provocation of confrontation, its dissemination of false information and provocative statements against China, and its attempts to launch a new cold war. “Korea's enhanced relations with NATO could lead to the erosion of relations between China and Korea”, the South Korean News Agency of News, on 23, claimed that Yoon Suk-yeol, as President of Korea, had participated in the NATO summit for the first time, raising fears in South Korea that strengthened relations with NATO would affect relations between China and Korea. The report quotes experts who say that the issue of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's greatest concern to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is not at all the subject of a NATO summit. Instead, South Korea may be asked to join NATO's anti-China containment network, and South Korea must be vigilant about this burning. In his 23-day interview with a reporter from the Global Times, Liaoning Institute’s chief researcher at the Korea Korea Research Centre, the Korean Institute, the Korean government should be careful not to bring NATO forces to the Asia-Pacific region, which would not only undermine the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and the Asia-Pacific region, but would also be countered by the countries of Asia and the Pacific, including China.
