North Korea must win back Asean goodwill

 North Korea must win back Asean goodwill

North Korea has officially asked for Asean’s support in its row with the US over the current stand-off.

Frankly speaking, it was a bit too late and also unwarranted.

 

For nearly two decades, North Korea has had ample opportunities to use Asean goodwill and friendship

and its numerous mechanisms to build up confidence and further reduce tensions in the Korean Peninsula.

But Pyongyang chose to completely ignore Asean. Even worse, it has taken the grouping for granted and in the process

greatly undermined its potential power to shape issues impacting peace and security in earlier days.
