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.
To realize peace on the Korean peninsula, and to develop exchange, cooperation between both Koreas, they are the, you know, immediate target of our government.
Well, that is very imperative to let North Korea open door to outside.
I think a major cause of present Asian economic difficulties that mainly come from, you know, lack of market economy.
