Shin: China has always advocated diplomacy with North Korea, and I believe that China's cooperation is essential, but I would also caution against relying or counting on China too heavily. It's fair to say, however, that the North Korean leadership is at best ambivalent about the notion of Chinese-style economic reform and "opening up".
