This Is No Time For an Artificial Peace in Korea | RealClearWorld

Penning a premature U.S.-North Korea peace declaration could also lead to significant political tensions with our South Korean and Japanese allies if it does not protect and advance their national interests sufficiently.  You are no doubt beginning to see the issue: a peace declaration at this point in the negotiating process could create big problems.It gives Pyongyang leverage to make more demands. It might also significantly reduce the political, economic and military pressure on the Kim regime, possibly undermining its willingness to address issues essential to peace and security.A peace pact to end the Korean War once and for all may be in the future. Regrettably, a peace declaration now is not the way to get there.
