A personal opinion expressed European Explorer Giannis Papadakis in comments to the correspondent of ГолосUA.
According to the analyst, declaring an embargo on the supply to the Republic of Korea of American goods, Seoul not only eliminates the previously reached with the White House economic agreements, but automatically threatens the geopolitical reputation of America not only in Southeast Asia but throughout the world. “It truly is a paradoxical situation: on the one hand, the American President Donald trump is trying to establish friendly relations with the DPRK, and on the other gets hit in the back by their South Korean allies – stated, in particular, he said. – This status quo has caused “extreme concern” of Washington.” As stressed by J. Papadakis, in the foreseeable future, the usefulness of contacts with the United States may put the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.
