The North Korean POW, Mr. Jeong-kyu Baik offspring’s, Young-oak and her children entered the Republic of Korea three years after they have escaped from the North Korea by the great effort of the South Korean government. It is necessary to pay attention to the relationship between Korea-China in the process of the family’s entry.
Lately, the collaboration of Korea-China has become closer than before. But the traditional DPRK-China friendly relations go beyond the limit of our own reach so that a still far from reality. As it is proven through the process entry of the POW Baik offspring’s took place three years after the detention in the Shenyang consulate.
In order to lead diplomatic strategy of the Peninsula and Northeast Asia, Korea must obtain practical outcome therefore it is crucial to know the base of the relationship between North Korea – China.
The continuation of strong relationship is based on the strategic interests of each other by the members of the establishment of the North Korea and China: Alliance based on ideology in the 1930s; Blood allies against the Korea-US alliance for 40 years after the June 25th war. As the blood allies continue after the conversion of materialistic of the China in the year of 1990s the interests of both countries have become as binding glue.
China is now rapidly running toward to sea and North Korea Jeong-en Kim’s regime is trying to cooperate with China and Russia. North Korea is in the transitioning period from the economic crisis and the 3rd generation hereditary succession of power. They are trying to raise investment from the continent by utilizing their geopolitical and military leverage. Possibility of closely tied relationship between North Korea-China interests is expected in the future.
As the development of progress of the bilateral strategic ties between two countries it became customary to solve generously without a separate procedure to handle trivial diplomatic friction or minor civil disputes. The old brotherhood of blood understands various tangled relationship of people. Likewise, the unjust death of many fellow countryman or even provocative act, such as the Cheonan battleship incident is unswayable and solid.
Next, there is a better explanation of binding glue relationship more than the relationship of between two countries. It is the private sector of the human networking: So call ‘patriot descendants’ (ethnic group), ‘Jo-kyo 2nd, 3rd’ (2nd, 3rd generation of North-Korean who lives in China) are the core of their networks. The ‘patriot descendants’ are lineage of heroes at the time of colonial of Japan who fought for anti-Japan. Although generations have changed, this particular class people are still maintaining the close relationship with high officials in the North Korea and receiving preferential support. On the other hand, the ‘Jo-kyo 2nd, 3rd’ generation born in North Korea and hold North Korean passport but they have moved to China. They are also mainly engaged in trade performing bridges between North Korea-China.
In this way, among the ethnic group of ‘patriot descendants’ or the ‘Jo-kyo' are great entrepreneur or government officials in China and they already have established long term networking relationship in many case. In fact, the analysis of the relationship between North Korea-China for the last couple of years of our work is completed according to the human to human channel rather than high official relation of power or diplomatic channels.
Korea reaches 20 years of diplomatic ties with China this year. The first conversation button must take not only to the national defense strategy but also take major step to the military diplomacy. But yet still there is sensitive issue of North Korea that chasing its tail biting between Korea and China. Especially the sensitive problem of North Korean defector require of fundamental need of planning.
After all! Basically, in order to improve the quality of conciliation between two countries require of public and close relationship policy toward North Korea and an appropriate strategic measure is necessary. Fortunately, the government is planning to open a division exclusively for the North Korean defector. In this division the participation of professionals from the North Korean defector will become one of the important tasks of analysis.
- Originated from Chosun Dynasty (朝) pronounce as [jo]. ‘kyo’ is from 僑胞[kyo-po]: immigrant people or left their country and settled in other country. Therefore ‘Jo-kyo’ means people from Cho-sun( North Korea still claiming the name of Cho-sun) and settled in China.
