Tensions between the U.S. and China have increased since the Alaska meeting, and the Biden administration has repeatedly tried to reach out to North Korea, but has been “read but not returned. This is a signal that Kim Jong Un wants to join Xi Jinping in a warm-up and fight the siege of the free world.
North Korea’s official media KCNA reported today (March 23) that Kim Jong Un recently sent a message to Xi Jinping, informing him of the eighth congress of the Workers’ Party and saying, “Based on careful study and analysis of the situation on the Korean peninsula and the state of international relations, it was decided to discuss policy positions on strengthening national defense forces, north-south relations and inter-Korean-US relations. … In order to deal with the all-round challenges and obstructive plots of hostile forces, the two parties and countries will strengthen their unity and cooperation.”
At the same Time, Kim Jong Un also claimed that North Korea continues to follow the path of socialism.
The news comes at a time when both the U.S.-China and North Korea-U.S. relations continue to be frozen, and top U.S. diplomats are traveling non-stop between the Asia-Pacific and Europe to discuss with allies how to maintain the international order and deal with challenges from dictatorial regimes such as the Chinese Communist Party, North Korea and Iran.
The 12th U.S., Japan, Australia and India quadrilateral security dialogue focused on the security of the South and East China Seas threatened by the Chinese Communist Party, North Korea’s nuclear weapons and other issues, and also talked about the competing models of autocracy and democracy, and the four heads of state also made it clear that they have no illusions about the Chinese Communist Party.
On the 16th, the U.S. and Japanese foreign and defense ministers held 2+2 talks, criticizing by name the Chinese Communist Party’s failure to abide by the international order, expressing concern about human rights issues in Hong Kong and Xinjiang, and confirming that they would address the issue of North Korea’s full-scale denuclearization and resolve the issue of Japanese abductions by North Korea as soon as possible.
In the 2+2 talks between the U.S. and South Korean foreign and defense ministers on the 18th, both sides confirmed that they will work together to build a free and open Indo-Pacific region and oppose acts that undermine the international order, and that the North Korean nuclear issue is a priority issue to be resolved in the South Korea-U.S. alliance.
On the 19th, the U.S. and Chinese top brass held a fiery U.S.-China dialogue in Alaska, and on the 22nd U.S. Secretary of State Blinken visited Europe to attend a meeting of NATO foreign ministers and meet with top EU officials, showing that the U.S. is in demand to join forces with European partners to address challenges such as the Chinese Communist Party.
According to outside analysis, this series of intensive actions reveals that the U.S. wants to unite with its Indo-Pacific and European allies to form an encirclement of the Chinese Communist Party and its communist sibling North Korea, so North Korea and the Chinese Communist Party have to huddle under pressure to resist the “hostile forces” of the free world.
On the 15th, as the U.S. top brass visited Japan and South Korea, Kim Jong-un’s sister Kim Yo-jung issued a statement through North Korean official media warning that the U.S. “should not spread the smell of smoke and mirrors if it wants to sleep peacefully. This is the first time that North Korea has spoken out against the United States since Biden was inaugurated as president.
Kim Jong Un has not provoked with nuclear weapons and missiles during Trump‘s presidency and is actively seeking to hold a “Trump-Kim meeting” with Trump, but his relationship with Biden is extremely poor. “The company’s main business is to promote the development of the company’s products and services. The government has been in power since Biden took office. Since taking office, the Biden Administration has sought to engage North Korea through various channels, but North Korea has refused to respond, and has shown a long list of military weapons to threaten.
On the other hand, relations between China and North Korea have turned cold since Kim Jong-un took office, and there have been rumors of bad blood. The last time Kim Jong Un and Xi Jinping met was in 2019, when Kim Jong Un met twice with former U.S. President Donald Trump but could not reach an agreement and was facing strong pressure at Home and abroad, and Xi Jinping chose this time to visit Pyongyang to express his support.
External analysis shows that although Kim Jong-un does not want to stay as the CCP’s little brother, in the new situation, it is not unlikely that North Korea and the CCP will unite again against the international community in order to maintain the regime and the interests of the dictatorial group.
Judging from the Chinese Communist Party’s performance as a wolf in the US-China talks and its retaliation against Europe immediately after the US and European sanctions, the Chinese Communist Party should think that the Biden administration has come to power and that the opportunity is ripe to challenge the international order by showing its fangs. The Chinese Communist Party also invited Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to visit China at the same time as the U.S. Secretary of State’s visit to Europe, in order to draw in Russia, which is under U.S. sanctions.
