ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the relationship between the United States and South Korea. President George W. Bush and his South Korean counterpart, Roh Moo Hyun, exchanged diplomatic pleasantries at their summit in Washington last Friday. Bush noted that both countries "share the same goal" of getting North Korea to give up its nuclear-weapons program, and that both agree that the long-stalled six-party talks are "essential" to that process. Roh said that the United States and South Korea had "one or two minor issues" about how to deal with North Korea's nuclear program, "but I'm certain we'll be able to work them out with dialogue." Words alone are unlikely to heal what is in fact a growing rift between the two nations. For one thing, the United States wants to respond more proactively to global security threats. Meanwhile, such tensions as well as booming trade with China are pushing Seoul closer to Beijing on several issues, including what to do about the North's nuclear ambitions.
