• Introduction: The political landscape of South Eastern Asia The politics of South Eastern Asia in respect to the conflicts of India-Pakistan Kashmir dispute and the Korean Peninsula dispute, are really leftover cleavages by greater powers that occupied/supported the respective regions. Hence like all leftover problems of the ages past, it is complicated by nature. However as all actors seek to win the favor of great powers once more, the regional power, China is facing a complicated problem, the problem of having to supporting an ungrateful ally and supporting an ally that won’t win, all involved in conflicts that can’t be solved in the foreseeable future. China, despite having a personal benefit and loss in both, really has no idea what she is doing. • A rivalry of ideology: The conflict between North and South Korea When we talk about the conflict between North and South Korea, we need to go back to the history of Korean War in 1950(), which is also a part of the Cold war. During this conflict, there were also some international power interventions, the United States of America, USSR and PRC were all get involved to some extend. On June 25, 1950, the troops of Communist Kim II Sung crossed the dividing line and separate the Korean Peninsula into two separate parts between the South and the North because of South Korea’s constant defiance (). This is also considered as the beginning of the Korean War as well as pulls the rivalry history of North and South Korea open.
