Dr. Yoichi Funabashi, Chairman of the Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation, had a conversation with Mr. Kazutoshi Hando, which was published under the title ‘Learn from the failure of the Pacific War’ in the June issue of Bungeishunju. The article was introduced under a special feature entitled ‘The Korean Peninsula Crisis.’
In the dialogue, Dr. Funabashi addressed U.S.-North Korean relations, Sino-North Korean relations, and U.S.-Chinese relations under the current North Korean situation, as well as the possible influence of these factors on the Japan-U.S. alliance and security order in the Asia-Pacific. He explained that the current situation could be thought of the third Korean Peninsula nuclear crisis and suggested courses to take for overcoming the crisis.
