If America would withdraw from South Korea, there could be a power struggle between such as China and Japan.
So if North Korea continues present isolation, then with such economic difficulties the North Korean government must meet a very serious situation in the future.
There is some sign that North Korea is changing recently. There is ongoing successful negotiation to have a military talk to Pyongyang, which has been stopped for seven years.
So in Asia I want to make – I want to succeed to make a model of what success, practicing democracy, and market economy. Then that will give a good influence over Asian countries.
So South Korean ability is very much limited to handle North Korean, you know, difficulties. So we don’t want to see an immediate collapse of the North Korea regime.
So moderate is insisting that North Korea should open door to outside.
So such an American troops presence in Korea in the South and Japan, total some 100,000 should stay there forever, even after unification of Korean peninsula.
Unification is one thing, and stability in Northeast Asia is another thing.
And also, we are providing, you know, a nuclear power plant in the north, two light water systems, so some 4 or 5 billion dollars we are providing to meet with North Korean requests on the condition North Korea will not produce a nuclear weapon.
But such IMF pressure is very much helpful for me to push such a, you know, reform. So in this sense I think IMF is very much helpful for alien society.
