Fragile peace prospects on Korean Peninsula

The world is seeing a brand new start where North Korea stops its nuclear and missile tests.

If Beijing and Tokyo indulge themselves in negative feelings against each other, exterior countries will have opportunities and levers to drive a wedge between the two, and may even profit from Sino-Japanese confrontation.
