Michel Reymond's insight:
By Kim Dae Jung: Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew has suggested that the "Western concepts" of democracy and human rights will not work in Asia. This is false: Asia has its own venerable traditions of democracy, the rule of law, and respect for the people. Asia's destiny is to improve Western concepts, not ignore them.

Sondage en Corée du Sud: Une guerre avec le Nord ? Pas impossible

Sondage en Corée du Sud: Une guerre avec le Nord ? Pas impossible | Korea, Sun Myung Moon, Unification | Scoop.it
Michel Reymond's insight:

A survey of 1,020 adults by the South Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans said Tuesday that 78.7% of Koreans thought possible a new war breaks out between North Korea and South Korea, against 15 7% who believe that the war is over effectively and 4.2% who believe that war is completely finished. The survey conducted as part of ceremonies marking the 60th anniversary come the end of the war with neighboring North Korea was to gauge public opinion on the state of the relationship between the two rivals. Reunification does not seem a priority since almost half of respondents (45.7%) think that the two Koreas remain divided over the next 20 years. A quarter think the division will continue for a decade and 15% for another fifteen years. The South Korean government, however, grow to continue security policy conducted so far (national security alliance with the U.S. Army) while trying to improve diplomatic relations with Pyongyang.
