South Korea prepares for any future provocation from the North.

(Kuala Lumpur =Koreanpress) by Ramani Rathir =President Obama has shown continued support for South Korea by endorsing President Park Geun-hye's strategy for resolving tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
This came about after meeting of the two presidents in the White House. However, observers say there is still some degree of tension between the two countries.

The bone of contention is, just how much should South Korea go against North Korea if and when hostilities rise again. The worry in Washington is that thjis may act as a catalyst for South Korea to expand its nuclear programme. No one said it, but the US certainly does not want Seoul producing a nuclear bomb. The nuclear club was large enough as far as the Americans were concerned. New members were not really welcome at this point in time. "If Pyongyang thought its recent threats would drive a wedge between South Korea and the United States, or somehow garner the North international respect, today is further evidence that North Korea has failed again," Obama announced. "President Park and South Koreans have stood firm, with confidence and resolve.

" However it remains unclear whether President Park will not open talks with North Korea unless it moves towards a programme of denuclearization. It must be remembered the lady took office earlier this year, on a platform of trustpolitik. Analysts now question whether her willingness to entertain trust-building talks with the North will clash with U.S. policy. At the moment, with North Korea cutting off its virulent rhetoric, tensions between the two neighbours seems to have de-escalated considerably.

The silence is telling and has grown quiter now that the the North has begun removing several missiles from their launch platforms. Prior to Park's visit, American and South Korea agreed to renew their current nuclear deal for two years as they were unable to reach an agreement. Officials of the two countries are currently negotiating a new civilian nuclear deal. The Obama administration, as previous administrations, is reluctant to have South Korea reprocess or enrich its nuclear fuel. This would mean the Korean ally will mot be able to resume its long-dormant nuclear programmme.
