Asian Allies Measure Their China Connections as Regional Disagreements Raise


This week’s Pacific Rim Allies members South Korea and the Philippines should reveal that, although they are working to help Asia’s superpowers, both lean to the West rather than to China.

Both countries would pull Beijing further behind in Asia by swinging to the West, where its military expansion alerts multiple governments and offers the United States the chance to participate in the region, scientists think.

Ties with China

South Korea is sparing over North Korea relations with China. Missiles are regularly tested in the south, and in 2017 Peking opposed the development of a state-of – the-art antimissile program. The US-backed program could track activities in China.

Specially China and South Korea have jurisdiction over a tiny island, and Chinese fishing boats have been shot by the coastguard of South Korea. Nonetheless, both sides agreed last month that relations will strengthen.

US alliances

The Philippines joined U.S. and Japanese forces last month in an annual military exercise where Manila news reports said they aim to keep Asia ‘ free, open ‘ as Washington calls for an end to China’s expansion.

This month, South Korea responded to the U.S. lobbying by announcing that it would continue to enter into an intelligence sharing agreement with Japan following a trade spat with the nation.

South Korea expects from China and US for helping it in its North Korean issues.

Korean aid to the Philippines

South Korea has emerged as a benefactor of the Philippines since 2017 and its leaders are expected at the summit to enter into the four economic agreements. Companies of South Korea are also constructing the ships in order for Manila to upgrade its navy. The Philippine frigate has been worked by Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries this month.
