Looking at the pledge to North Korea, it is extremely different.

The Democratic Party, which wants to revisit the Mt. Geumgang, unravel the Gaesung Industrial Complex, and promote the joint hosting of the Olympic Games, will actively participate in sanctions against North Korea by the international community, if the South and the North agree to work together to resolve issues on the Korean Peninsula. The United Nations, which wants to create a containment system in the National Assembly to keep it out of North Korea, will change the trajectory of the current government's North Korea policy.

[Gumingyo / Seoul National University Graduate School of Public Administration (Korea Policy Society): In addition, the Democratic Party (DPRK) has made such a pledge that it is highly ideal to solidify any cooperation system between the two Koreas even though the sanctions (North Korea) are being maintained, while the Future Unification Party was previously a government ruling party's policy. I will flip all of them and start over from the origin. It is judged that the specific vision or commitment is insufficient.]

What is the diplomatic strategy between the United States and China?

The Democratic Party has pledged to make the ROK-US alliance a mutually beneficial and inclusive alliance, but to further develop strategic partnerships with China.

[Gumingyo / Seoul National University, Graduate School of Public Administration (Korea Policy Institute): I am constantly being asked questions from the neighboring countries about the exact position (for the United States and China). ]

The United Party's pledge is to build a “strong ROK-US alliance”.

The deployment of additional THAAD and the ROK-US alliance is also open to the possibility, so it tends to add weight to the United States rather than China.

[Gumingyo / Seoul National University, Graduate School of Public Administration (Korea Policy Society): The clarity of policy is a bit noticeable, but in reality, I can raise the question of whether it is possible.]

In the case of Japan's policy, the Democratic Party pledged to "solve the problem with the right perception of history, but expand private-level exchanges," and the United Party "to strengthen security cooperation between Korea and the United States."

The Democratic Party and the Justice Party will actively promote the return of wartime operational control, but the United Party intends to proceed after the North Korean nuclear weapons program has been abolished and the Socialist Party after securing a consensus.
