  • Sergei Shoigu
    Sergei Shoigu “The U.S. and its allies are trying to prolong the conflict as much as possible. To do this, they have started supplying heavy offensive weapons, openly urging Ukraine to seize our territories. In fact, such steps are dragging NATO countries into the conflict and could lead to an unpredictable level of escalation.” 3 hours ago

“When the Reuters reporter asked him point blank if joint nuclear exercises were being discussed, President Biden obviously had to say, 'No'. outh Korea and the United States are in talks over information-sharing, joint planning and the joint implementation plans that follow, in relation to the operation of US nuclear assets, to respond to North Korea's nuclear weapons.”

“What we call extended deterrence was also the US telling us not to worry because it will take care of everything, but now, it's difficult to convince our people with just that. The US government also understands that to some degree. To better respond to North Korea's nuclear threats, Seoul wants to take part in the operation of US nuclear forces. The nuclear weapons belong to the United States, but planning, information sharing, exercises and training should be jointly conducted by South Korea and the United States.”

“There is no way that the U.S. government will revise the law because Biden has touted it as one of his biggest achievements in office ahead of the midterm elections in November. In addition, the U.S. cannot give an exception only to Korea, while its other close allies are subject to the IRA [Inflation Reduction Act].”

“President Biden and I agreed that the sophistication of North Korea's military capabilities, such as missiles and its nuclear program, has posed grave concerns to the security of our two countries. In response, President Biden reemphasized his commitment to the U.S. government's extended deterrence commitment to South Korea. In detail, we agreed to begin discussions on expanding our joint military exercises, which are key to our combined defense capability, and to coordinate with each other on deploying U.S. strategic assets and additional measures. In order to prepare ourselves for a possible nuclear attack from North Korea, there have been discussions that our two countries' combined military exercise should be carried out in various ways.”

“President Biden's visit to Pyeongtaek Campus [Samsung Electronics Pyeongtaek Campus] not only manifests the significance of semiconductors in economic and national security but also gives an opportunity to recall the meaning of the Korea-U.S. global comprehensive alliance through semiconductors. I ask President Biden to provide various incentives for Korean semiconductor companies' investment toward the U.S. and pay greater attention to U.S. equipment and designing companies' investments in Korea. And I hope today's visit will result in upgrading Korea-U.S. relations to become an economic security alliance which is based on advanced technologies and supply chain partnerships.".”

“Now Putin's brutal and unprovoked war in Ukraine has further spotlighted the need to secure our critical supply chain so that our economy and our economic and our national security are not dependent on countries that don't share our values. The critical component of how we'll do that in my view is by working with close partners who do share our values like the Republic of Korea to secure more of what we need from our allies and partners and bolster our supply chain resilience. Our two nations work together to make the best most advanced technology in the world and this factory is proof of that. That gives both the Republic of Korea and the U.S. a competitive edge in the global economy, if we can keep our supply chains resilient, reliable and secure.”

“The president's lucky in who he has as counterparts. I was doing the math on this, and it's been at least 20 years since an American president could travel to Japan and Korea and count on the leaders in both countries being so forthrightly pro-alliance.”

“There has been a common understanding between me and Kim [Sung Kim] that South Korea can secure greater room in addressing North Korea's denuclearization or other issues when the relations between Seoul and Washington become stronger.”

“It seems that Yoon [Yoon Suk-yeol] is carrying out what he said during the presidential campaign - rebuilding the South Korea-U.S. alliance. There is no doubt that we should have the alliance as the basis of our diplomacy, but it is also true that we cannot rule out China given the intertwined relationship with North Korea and other neighboring countries. The current situation forces South Korea to choose a side between the U.S. and China, but we also have to think about risks associated with uncertainty surrounding the U.S. side.”

“It is obvious fact that the South Korea-U.S. alliance is the main pillar of Seoul's diplomacy, national security and economic policies. However, it is uncertain whether the Yoon administration [Yoon Suk-yeol] is pursuing policies leaning toward the U.S. after considering the costs of such policies. It seems that Yoon is engaging with the U.S. without contingency plans for North Korea's nuclear and missile threats and the side effects of joining the U.S. bandwagon. Regarding the Korean delegation to the U.S., Yoon has revealed his hand too quickly and even if he decides to send delegations to China, he needs to be more prudent about the consequences.”

“The looming prospect of possible nuclear tests, more joint U.S.-South Korea military drills, and the new conservative South Korean president mean all conditions are present for a tit-for-tat chain reaction of escalatory steps. Though Biden would prefer to focus exclusively on the Ukraine crisis, it's likely he will soon face crisis-level tensions between the Koreas.”

“I will respond decisively to the illegal and unreasonable behaviors of North Korea based on principles, while always keeping the door for inter-Korean dialogue open. I will rebuild the ROK-U.S. alliance and strengthen the comprehensive strategic alliance, while sharing the core values of liberal democracy, a market economy and human rights. I will develop bilateral relations of mutual respect between Korea and China and create a future-oriented Korea-Japan relationship.”

“We are taking on the task of improving [South] Korea's diplomatic capability amid North Korea's growing nuclear threats and intensifying U.S.-China competition. To protect the people's safety and the country's sovereignty, I will build a strong national defense capability which can deter any provocation. … I will rebuild the Korea-U.S. alliance and strengthen it further by sharing the value of liberal democracy, free market and human rights.”

“I would focus on bolstering a comprehensive and strategic alliance with the United States based on the shared values and principles of freedom, democracy, the market economy, constitutionalism and human rights. I will pursue open cooperation to expand common interests with related countries in the region by participating in working groups for vaccines, climate change and new technology under the Quad, a partnership between the U.S., Japan, Australia and India.”

“Lee [Lee Jae-myung] has consistently called for a universal basic income. He is currently taking a rather soft position on the matter, saying he would not unilaterally push for the basic income policy without social consensus. But it is likely that he would put a stronger drive into introducing a basic income once elected. In contrast, Yoon [Yoon Suk-yeol] would shift the focus of economic policies to encouraging entrepreneurial growth over wealth distribution, introducing more business-friendly policies by easing regulations and offering tax incentives. If Yoon is elected, he would emphasize the principle that denuclearization should come first before inter-Korean cooperation, whereas Lee would continue the engagement policies pursued by the Roh Moo-hyun and Moon Jae-in governments. For other neighboring countries, Lee would try to strike a balance between China and the U.S. amid their growing rivalry, but it would be hard to expect that bilateral relations between South Korea and Japan could improve under Lee's leadership, as he is focused on the historical issues between the countries. For Yoon, it is obvious that he would be committed to strengthening the South Korea-U.S. alliance and improving relations with Japan, considering the figures selected as members of his election camp.”

“Will a summit with Xi help the Moon government build a sustainable foreign policy platform vis-a-vis several foreign policy issues - the alliance with the U.S., dealing with the North Korea challenge, and Seoul's alignment between Washington and Beijing? It's unclear. There seem to be more pitfalls associated with this decision. It renders uncertainties in the U.S.-ROK alliance even more apparent and it may stir the pot in tensions between Washington and Beijing. The long-term costs far outweigh the very short-term political gains associated with Seoul's conduct.”

“Our administration has proposed the end-of-war declaration in order to pass on a situation, in which the U.S., South Korea and North Korea are in talks, to the next administration. Close cooperation between Seoul and Washington is more important than anything else.”

“The United States and the ROK remain committed to a diplomatic approach to the DPRK. And we continue to call upon the DPRK to engage in dialogue, but we also discussed measures to enhance our combined deterrence posture and to defend against the full range of threats. We also approved new strategic planning guidance (SPG), an important step forward to frame forthcoming alliance planning efforts.”
