Q.

Is our Korea policy a bit on the opportunistic side? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/83 /Map_Non-Aligned_Movement.png North Korea was a CORE NAM member from early days. In their prosperity days, they even supported a lot of NAM aid donor programmes to Africa, got us good support there on our behalf etc...

But when the tides turn 4 them, we just sort of bandwagon and jump on South Korea's side declaring North as an enemy even if they did nothing bad 2 India? Professionally, couldn't we have AT LEAST dealt w/ both Koreas equally rather than blatant u-turns?

There is nothing called friendship in international matters. Its business. Even when India had support of USSR, USSR needed an ally as some of neighboring countries were allied with USA. The best thing of these relations was India & her neighbors were called Non allied countries.!!

North Korea is losing all positions because of its Govt. Communism has failed all over and has become an absolute. Not that democracy is better...but its slightly better than the worst !!!! Even China has turned to capitalism and is encouraging capitalism. With India North korea has nothing to offer because these internal problems. Consider the same with South Korea ...we have huge business interests and keeping it afloat business decisions are taken to keep the relations going.

India being neutral has not gone on offensive with North Korea ... !! in that sense India has done no U turn in her policies... !!
