Speaking to Phoenix TV, Chen Qi and Paul Haenle discussed the Korean Peninsula and its impact on U.S.-China relationships. Chen, speaking in Chinese, pointed out that the main cause of tension between North and South Korea is the South’s reversal of its Sunshine Policy, following the Yeonpyeong Island incident on 23 November, 2010. Haenle added that the status of North Korea affects bilateral relations between the United States and China, explaining that some of the recent progress in U.S.-China relations reflects “China getting involved and persuading the North Koreans not to take provocative actions in the future.”
