Structural change has occurred in the security environment of the Northeast Asian region. The countries neighboring with the Korean peninsula now realize the necessity of a comprehensive security agreement. Under this circumstance, the Multilateral Security Cooperation MSC is imperative for regional areas to support Korean reunification and to accept a unified Korea as non-threatening. Therefore, the Republic of Korea should share in creating a multilateral security cooperation system in the region, as well as enhance a more solid alliance with the United States. Consequently, the ROK should persevere in its efforts to guide North Korea to join the dialogue and to realize the Basic Agreement. Bilateral security arrangements and growing MSC are mutually reinforcing. The ROK-U.S. relationship should be focused on reunification-oriented security cooperation for peaceful coexistence and promotion of reunification.
