North Korean border guard shoots 3 Chinese dead
8 June 2010  -  China-North Korea bridge The four were allegedly shot close to the countries' border.
China says a North Korean border guard shot and killed three people near the countries' border last week.
A fourth person was reportedly injured in the incident near the north-eastern border town of Dandong

China has made a formal complaint to North Korea, a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry said.
The two countries are considered to be close allies and Beijing rarely makes any public criticism of its isolated neighbour.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a regular news conference in Beijing that the four residents of Dandong, in Liaoning province, had been shot "on suspicion of crossing the border for trade activities".

"China attaches great importance to that and has immediately raised a solemn representation with the DPRK," he said, using North Korea's full name.
Mr Qin said the case was being investigated, but gave no further details. Pyongyang has not commented on the accusations.

Illegal traders regularly cross the border between North Korea and China, taking black market goods into the impoverished country.
Close ally
China is North Korea's main trading partner and the country perceived to have the most influence on the state.
Map
Tensions on the Korean peninsula have been high since the sinking of a South Korean warship in March with the loss of 46 lives.

An international investigation blamed North Korea for the sinking, but China has resisted pressure to condemn its ally. Instead, it has urged both the Koreas to show restraint.
Last month, the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il, was reported to have visited China to seek economic and political support.

China is crucial to North Korea's fight for economic survival, providing Pyongyang with food, fuel and much-needed investment.
Beijing is also a participant in the six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear programme. The talks have been going on since 2003 without much progress.   BBC

South Korean fighter jet downed
June 18, 2010
 SEOUL, South Korea - South Korea's Air Force says a fighter jet crashed into the sea after a training mission and its two pilots were killed.
The Air Force said the F-5 jet went missing off the east coast early Friday as it was returning to its air base in Gangneung after finishing a training mission.
The base is about 147 miles (237 kilometers) east of Seoul.
The Air Force said rescuers recovered the bodies of the two pilots.
The Air Force also grounded all F-5 jets for safety checks. The cause of the accident was not immediately known.
In March, two F-5 jets crashed into a mountain during training, killing three airmen.

South Korea launches naval drills in Yellow Sea
despite North Korean threats to retaliate

August 05, 2010    ABOARD the ROK DOKDO

South Korean troops fired artillery and dropped sonar buoys into the Yellow Sea as naval drills kicked off near the spot where a warship sank four months ago.

Some 4,500 South Korean troops aboard more than 20 ships and submarines as well as about 50 aircraft were mobilized Thursday to take part in the five days of naval exercises off the west coast, including spots near the two Koreas' maritime border, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

North Korea called the drills a military provocation that threatened to re-ignite war on the Korean peninsula.
"If the puppet warmongers dare ignite a war, (North Korea) will mercilessly destroy the provokers and their stronghold by mobilizing most powerful war tactics and offensive means beyond imagination," the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said in a statement carried by North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency.

KCNA reiterated the committee's message in a separate report later Thursday, warning North Korea will retaliate at "even the slightest sign of attack."
In Washington, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said North Korea should not feel in any way threatened by these exercises as they are defensive in nature.

Soldiers aboard the 14,000-ton ROK Dokdo, an amphibious landing ship, patrolled the deck as Lynx helicopters dropped sonar devices into the sea in search of enemy submarines. A 1,200-ton frigate remained on standby, ready to bomb the target.

The fleet dispatched for the exercises also include three 1,800-ton submarines, a 4,500-ton destroyer, and some 50 fighter jets, Cmdr. Won Hyung-sik of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in Seoul.

The drills come just weeks after South Korea's joint military exercises with the U.S. off the east coast — maneuvers held in response to the deadly March sinking of the Cheonan warship, which killed 46 South Korean sailors.

The U.S. will also send the USS George Washington supercarrier, which participated in last month's drills off the east coast, to South Korea again for their annual military exercises, called "Ulchi Freedom Guardian," Morrell told reporters.

The exercises, set for Aug. 16 through Aug. 26., will take place in the Yellow Sea as well as in the waters off South Korea's east coast, he said.

A five-nation team of investigators concluded in May that a North Korean torpedo fired from a submarine sank the 1,200-ton Cheonan as the warship carried out routine surveillance. North Korea denied sinking the ship.

The waters off the west coast have been the site of several naval clashes between the two Koreas. The three-year Korean War ended in an armistice in 1953, but North Korea disputes the western maritime border unilaterally drawn by the United Nations.

North and South have engaged in three bloody battles near the line, most recently in November 2009, and the Cheonan went down in March not too far from the border.

Pyongyang warned earlier in the week it would "counter the reckless naval firing projected by the group of traitors with strong physical retaliation" and advised civilian ships to stay away from the maritime border.

The North also threatened to respond to last month's South Korea-U.S. military exercises with "nuclear deterrence" but South Korean military officials said there was no sign of unusual North Korean military activity.

North Korea routinely issues such threats, especially when the South holds joint military drills with the U.S. Pyongyang sees the exercises as a rehearsal for an invasion. The U.S. has 28,500 troops in South Korea to protect the longtime Asian ally.
South Korea was closely monitoring North Korea's military but spotted no unusual activity Thursday, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

South Korea begins massive anti-submarine drills
August 5, 2010
 In a move that is antagonizing North Korea and irking China, South Korea commenced a major naval exercise in the Yellow Sea Thursday, the largest since 46 South Korean sailors died in March in the sinking of a warship.
The five-day exercise involves some 4,500 personnel and all four branches of the military, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
Seoul, which oversaw an international investigation into the March sinking of the Cheonan, claims a North Korean submarine sank the corvette and is demanding an apology. A multinational investigation also found North Korea responsible. Pyongyang has vehemently denied the accusation.

Prior to the Cheonan's sinking, the South Korean navy had largely discounted the threat of submarines in the Yellow Sea, due to the shallow waters in the area.
North Korea said via state media that it would undertake "strong physical retaliation" and warned fishermen to stay clear of the Northern Limit Line, the disputed maritime border between the Koreas.

The drills amount to an "undisguised military intrusion," Pyongyang has said.
"The army and people of the DPRK are closely watching every move of [South Korean President] Lee Myung-bak's group of traitors. And if the puppet warmongers dare ignite a war, they will mercilessly destroy the provokers and their stronghold by mobilizing most powerful war tactics and offensive means beyond imagination," the Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said, according to North Korea's state-run news agency KCNA.
"Raising issue with the legitimate, defensive exercise is a provocation in itself," South Korean Rear Adm. Kim Kyung-sik retorted Wednesday, speaking to local reporters.

Meanwhile, China, which has refused to condemn North Korea over the alleged torpedo attack and which remains Pyongyang's closest strategic ally, is reportedly carrying out air defense drills on its Yellow Sea coast across from the Korean peninsula.

Given North Korea's decrepit military, experts say the chances of a naval attack on well-prepared South Korean forces are small.
"The North Koreans have to rely on asymmetric capabilities," said Dan Pinkston, who heads the international Crisis Group's Seoul offices. "In a straight-up fight they are not that capable."

Deadly North Korean strikes in past years - a commando raid on the South Korean presidential mansion in 1968; terrorist bombings in 1983 and 1987; and naval clashes in 1999 and 2002 - all used the element of surprise, an element that would be difficult to spring on the large, alert force South Korea is fielding for the maneuvers.

If North Korea retaliates, it will likely be with a weapons test rather than a direct confrontation, said one expert.
"They do not do eye-for-eye, tit-for-tat responses," said Choi Jin-wook of the Korea Institute of National Unification. "Shooting a missile or testing a weapon or some kind of diplomatic action are possible, but I don't think there will be a military reaction."

The exercise does not include any U.S. assets, leading some commentators to wonder whether Washington is wary of angering Beijing in the Yellow Sea.
South Korean and U.S. forces conducted exercises together in the Sea of Japan last month. Those exercises included an anti-sub infiltration component -- intended to thwart a submarine attack on a ship.
If the joint exercises continue, such a move could be part of a gradual build-up of American pressure on China.

"The U.S. is slowly containing China in other places, and they could exercise in the East Sea in the future," said the Korea Institute of National Unification's Choi. "I think the U.S. is very deliberately pressuring China."
The warship sinking has heightened tensions between the two neighbors who fought a war from 1950 to 1953. The war ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty, meaning the two nations are still technically at war. About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea.

North Korean plane crashes in China
18 August 2010
A North Korean MIG 15 fighter jet, has crashed in China near the country's shared border, say Chinese and South Korean reports.
It is believed the pilot, who was killed, may have been trying to defect to Russia.  Yonhap.
The crash happened in Fushun county, Liaoning province.
Defections are common but an attempt by plane is highly unusual and would be a source of embarrassment for Pyongyang.
China has a repatriation agreement with North Korea, which could explain why the pilot may have been trying to reach Russia, the report added.

Small aircraft crashes in northern China
August 18, 2010
Residents say a small aircraft that crashed in northern China was a helicopter carrying a North Korean pilot, who died, a villager said Wednesday.
The official Xinhua News Agency said in a brief report that an aircraft went down Tuesday afternoon in Lagu village in Fushun county. The county in Liaoning province lies about 150 kilometers (90 miles) from the North Korean border.
The man, who would give only his surname Ning, told The Associated Press he heard from other locals that the craft was a helicopter that had flown from North Korea and that the pilot was killed on impact.

USS George Washington to join military drills off Korean Peninsula
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/world/2010-09/10/c_13488885.htm


North Korea wants South talks as dark mood lifts
September 17,  2010
Reclusive North Korea  has proposed holding working-level military talks with rival South Korea, the Defense Ministry in Seoul said on Thursday, in a further sign of an easing in tensions on the divided peninsula.
The two Koreas have been in a stand-off since Seoul, with Washington's backing, accused Pyongyang of torpedoing its warship in March, killing 46 sailors. The North denies the charge.

The apparent thaw in ties comes as the North struggles to deal with the impact of months of flooding on its already weak economy and prepares for political succession as the health of leader Kim Jong-il deteriorates.
Diplomats said on Wednesday that a conference of the Workers' Party, which was meant to bring together the North's political elite for first time in 30 years, had probably been postponed, due to what the South said were "internal problems.

Some diplomats and an aid group have said the most likely cause for the delay was flooding, although media reports have also speculated Kim's health or disagreements over a reshuffle of the power structure could be holding up the start.
Heavy rain in the impoverished state over the past two months has hit food production that even in a good year falls a million tons short of the amount needed to feed its 23 million people.

The North proposed that the two sides discuss the Northern Limit Line, the de facto sea border off their west coast, and Seoul's plan to fly anti-Pyongyang leaflets into the North, a Defense Ministry official said.
Such talks have not been held since the warship sinking.

News of the proposal came as the United Nations Command (UNC) and the North Korean military were due to conduct a fifth-round of colonel-level meetings at the border truce village Panmunjom on Thursday.
The UNC said the meetings were being held to discuss the date, agenda and protocols for general-level talks on armistice issues related to the sinking of the Cheonan corvette in March.

SHIFT AFTER CHINA TRIP

Seoul and Washington responded to the sinking of the Cheonan by staging a series of intimidating joint military exercises off the peninsula, and by squeezing the North's already crumbling economy with tougher sanctions.
The allies have resisted calls by Beijing for the resumption of six-way disarmament talks on the North's nuclear program, saying it was up to Pyongyang to show it is genuinely committed to dialogue and cutting tensions.

"As part of the process of re-engagement, there has to be a reengagement on the South-North axis as well, and I think there is some reason to be somewhat optimistic that at least part of that has begun," U.S. envoy Stephen Bosworth said in Beijing.

Pyongyang threatened to retaliate with force and fired a barrage of artillery off its coastline toward a maritime border, but there have been signs of a thaw since Kim's surprise trip to ally China last month.
Analysts say Kim went to China in search of economic aid for his cash-strapped economy -- still reeling from botched currency reform late last year that triggered inflation and wiped out ordinary people's savings -- and to win political support for his son Kim Jong-un's succession.

Seoul this week announced its first substantial aid package to its destitute neighbor in more than two years after months of severe flooding that has killed dozens, destroyed thousands of homes and devastated farmland.
The neighbors also agreed to meet in the North Korean border town of Kaesong on Friday to discuss a resumption of reunions of families separated by war.
The apparent thaw has prompted the start of shuttle diplomacy between regional nuclear envoys, fuelling speculation of a resumption in aid-for-disarmament talks.

CJ NOTE
I have wondered if North and South KOREA would UNITE at some point.
There have been several attempts at this in recent years.
In some ways there is only one Korea.  The west cannot see this.
Tourists ARE permitted in North Korea, just closely watched.

South Korea sends rice aid to North Korea
September 17,  2010  
-   9 trucks carrying rice crossed the border at Paju, the second shipment inside a day after a fleet of trucks loaded with flour headed into North Korea.
A convoy of South Korean trucks carrying the first rice aid to North Korea in 3 years has crossed the peninsula's heavily armed border in the latest of a series of conciliatory moves between the nations.
Officials from both countries met in the North Korean border town of Kaesung to discuss the resumption of reunions of families split by the Korean War which were halted after the sinking of a South Korean warship earlier this year.

Relations between the two Koreas have soured since conservative President Lee Myun-bak's election in 2008, and then sank to their lowest point in decades at the start of the year with the sinking of a South Korean warship, killing 46 sailors.

North Korea Poised To Name New Leadership
September 28, 2010  
North Korea is expected to name new leadership at an historic meeting.
Analysts believe Jong-il's youngest son Kim Jong-un is likely to be given an official title at the Workers' Party conference.
That would pave the way for his eventual succession as leader.
Jong-il, who is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008, has reportedly accelerated succession plans.

The North's KCNA news agency said the conference would be held in Pyongyang "for electing its supreme leadership body", but provided no further details of the agenda.
The meeting had been due to start in early September. The report made no mention of the delay.

South Korea said it appeared the meeting was held up by "internal problems", probably related to flooding.
Media reports have also speculated Kim's health or disagreements over a
reshuffle of the power structure could be responsible for the delay.

Party meetings have been held around the country to elect delegates to conference, KCNA reported.
"The meetings elected working people and officials who have displayed patriotic devotion at the work sites for effecting a fresh revolutionary surge, remaining intensely loyal to the party and revolution as delegates to the conference," it said.

Next week's meeting will be the biggest political meeting in North Korea since 1980, when Jong-il himself began his official role.
He succeeded his father and state founder by taking on a Workers' Party title at the age of 38.
The 68-year-old leader, however, is not expected to go into retirement just yet despite his declining health, experts say.

His 20-something son is considered too young and inexperienced.
But by signalling Kim Jong-un's rise, experts say North Korea is readying for a collective father-and-son leadership in years to come.
That would cement the family's grip on power.

In the event Kim Jong-il dies suddenly, his son by then identified as figurehead leader, would be surrounded by close family confidantes who have been appointed to senior positions in the Workers' Party and military in recent months.

South Korea, China, the United States and Japan will all be watching for clues as to how the transfer of power proceeds in the country with a military-first policy and enough fissile material for at least six to eight nuclear weapons.

With North and South still technically at war, having only signed an armistice in 1953, regional powers are anxious to know what changes are afoot and who will command the country's nearly 1.2 million troops and another 7.7 million in the reserves.
Experts say the best case and most market-friendly outcome is an approximate continuation of the current system.

It is sad to hear that this nations are against each other. Honestly, it is alarming if there will be another Korean war because of what North Korea said.
That if the South will initiate war, they will finish the task of unification. I can't imagine if this will happen.
I just hope that the relationship between the two party's will get better so that all of the people will live in a peaceful and worry-free place.
