Example text

The Sunshine Policy recognizes the importance of the four major powers surrounding the Korean Peninsula, but refutes the traditional balance of power determinism. The big powers might constrain South Korea’s behavior, but cannot dictate its destiny. Although national division and the Korean conflict are products of Cold War bipolarity, it is the mandate of the Koreans to demolish the confining structure of the Cold War and to bring peace and stability to the Korean Peninsula through their own initiative.

As the Basic Agreement stipulates, the Kim Dae-jung government does not intend to change or undermine the North Korean government, the Kim Jong-il regime, the juche system, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Any attempt to do so is tantamount to interfering with the internal matters of North Korea, which is an outright violation of the Basic Agreement. The Sunshine Policy simply presupposes that an increasing frequency in exchanges and cooperation can spontaneously foster North Korea’s institutional and behavioral changes and changes in its people’s minds in the direction of an open-door approach, reforms, and ultimately peaceful co-existence.

In the post-1945 era, however, this has been the option followed by successive South Korean governments until the present. However, recently, and especially in the Kim Dae-jung era, there has been an effort to combine options two and three, and with considerable success to date. In the event of unification, much would depend upon the manner in which that status was achieved. Were Seoul to reign supreme over the process, it is likely that some effort to retain security ties with the United States would be made, quite possibly combined with an effort to retain positive relations with others, especially China, to alleviate concerns.
