Responsible actions needed to ensure peace of Korean Peninsula

Read Time:3 Minute, 26 Second

by People’s Daily-Given the continued escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula over the past months, all concerned parties should implement the resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council in a more strict manner and return to peaceful negotiations, the People’s Daily said in an editorial published on Sunday.

The commentary came after Friday’s ministerial meeting on the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula hosted by the UN Security Council at the UN headquarters in New York.

The latest developments on the peninsula highlighted an imperative need for all parties to intensify their efforts to bring stakeholders to dialogue table, added the commentary published under the pen name Zhong Sheng, which is often used to express the paper’s views on foreign policy.

It is reasonable for the DPRK to pursue its own security, but its nuclear and missile ambitions have put itself and the whole region into dire peril, stressed the article titled “Responsible actions are needed to ensure peace of Korean Peninsula”.

The country has been immersed itself into a strong sense of insecurity given historic reasons and reality, the paper added.

The DPRK must not be obsessed in a wrong path of repeated nuclear tests and missile launches that resulted in rounds of sanctions, the commentary said, calling on the country to respect and comply with the relevant Security Council resolutions.

The article pointed out that the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the US also added fuel to the escalated tensions since the two allies, who have been maintaining a high-handed pressure on the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula, revealed a strategic intention to crush the DPRK.

It is almost impossible to ease the crisis on the peninsula if the ROK and the US continue their fantasy to settle the problem with more military actions but turn a blind eye to reasonable appeals of the DPRK, the paper stressed.

China is not a directly-concerned party of the peninsula crisis, and it does not hold the key to solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula, the commentary admitted.

But it emphasized that no matter what happens, China will never waiver in its clear-cut position regarding the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, which means it will stay committed to the goal of denuclearization as well as the path of dialogue and negotiation.

In the next step, the DPRK should refrain from further nuclear test or missile launches, the article urged, adding that the ROK and the US, for their part, also need to stop launching or expanding their military drills or deployment against the DPRK.

All stakeholders need to comprehensively understand and fully implement the DPRK-related resolutions adopted by the Security Council, the paper said. The international community needs to step up their anti-proliferation efforts against the DPRK action. Meanwhile, all parties also need to do more to persuade stakeholders back to peaceful dialogues, it added.

China will, with its utmost sincerity and efforts, safeguard the peace and stability of Northeast Asia and realize the goal to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula along with relevant parties, the paper vowed, stressing that though a peace lover, the country is fearless of any provocations or tests.

China has proposed the “dual-track approach” and “suspension for suspension” plan for peaceful settlement of the issue, in an attempt to help the parties break out of the security dilemma and return to the negotiating table.

The objective, reasonable and feasible proposals, according to the editorial, not only conform to the requirements of the UN resolutions, but also meet the fundamental interest of all parties including the US and the DPRK.
  

《人民日报》:朝鲜半岛需要负责任行动

4月30日,《人民日报》刊登评论文章指出,在朝鲜半岛局势剑拔弩张的背景下,有关各方亟须更加严格和完整执行安理会涉朝决议,进一步加大劝和促谈力度,使半岛核问题重回谈判解决轨道。

这篇题为《朝鲜半岛需要负责任行动》的评论文章出现在《人民日报》3版“钟声”栏目。该栏目是《人民日报》就外交事务发声的主要栏目,此前曾多次被路透社等解读为代表“中国声音”。

文章称,出于历史与现实的双重原因,朝鲜在自身安全问题上始终抱有浓重的危机感。朝鲜保障自身安全的诉求无可厚非,但是,朝鲜发展核导,无异于将其自身、将整个地区都置于极不安全的境地。朝鲜必须尊重和遵守联合国安理会决议,不可在射导、核试、被制裁,再射导、再核试、再被进一步制裁的错误道路上越走越远。

文章同时强调,美韩一直以来在朝鲜半岛核问题上保持高压态势,流露出希望压垮、拖垮朝鲜的战略意图,又进一步推动了紧张局势升级。美韩如果对朝鲜的合理诉求毫无关切,幻想单纯靠军事加码就能解决问题,半岛局势就难有缓和空间。

文章说,中国不是朝鲜半岛问题的直接矛盾方,解决半岛核问题的钥匙也不在中国手里。不论形势怎么变化,中国的立场都很明确,即一方面坚持无核化这个既定目标,另一方面坚持以对话谈判为解决道路。

针对下一步行动,文章提出,朝鲜必须遵守联合国安理会决议,不得继续推进核导开发,同时美韩等方面也需避免继续实施甚至扩大针对朝鲜的军事演习和军力部署。各方应全面理解和完整执行安理会涉朝决议——针对朝鲜加快推进核导开发,国际社会有必要加大防扩散力度;针对半岛局势轮番升级,各方也有必要加大劝和促谈力度。

文章最后指出,中国爱好和平,也从不畏惧任何形式的挑衅与考验,将以最大诚意尽最大努力,同有关各方一起维护东北亚和平与稳定、实现朝鲜半岛无核化的目标。中国提出解决半岛问题的“双轨并行”思路以及作为启动对话第一步的“双暂停”倡议。这符合安理会决议的要求,符合包括美朝在内各方的根本利益,客观公正,合情合理,务实可行,有助于在当前为半岛和平进程“排雷”,为地区稳定创造条件。
