Chinese and Russian military aircraft entered South Korea's air defense identification zone, or KADIZ, without authorization, with one of the Russian planes violating South Korean airspace. Why are China and Russia strengthening ties including on the military front, and what is behind Russia’s intrusion of South Korea’s airspace? Will the Abe administration change its policy towards Seoul now that Japan’s House of Councilors election is over? Meanwhile, North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles on July 31st. How should Seoul respond to the quickly changing dynamics in the region? We are joined by Park Won-gon, Professor of International Studies at Handong Global University, to take a closer look at the latest developments. We also connect with Harry J. Kazianis, Senior Director for Korea studies at the Center for the National Interest, David Maxwell, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and Jung Dae-jin, Professor at the Ajou Institute of Unification, to broaden the perspective.
