U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and China’s foreign minister Wang Yi’s trips to South Korea have been postponed. Both the U.S. and China said domestic political issues got in the way of the planned visits. Still, speculation is mounting that Beijing has changed its diplomatic maneuver accordingly to Washington’s anti-China initiative. Initially, concerns arose that the Korean Peninsula would be fully exposed to the diplomatic warfare between the U.S. and China in October. But things seem to be put on hold for now. But due to the abrupt twist and turns, South Korea is feeling the need to reestablish its diplomatic position amid the ongoing bilateral dispute.
