China ‘deciding player’ in Korean reunification, paper says

China is the foreign country most likely to play a decisive role in reunification of Korean Peninsula, according to just under half of the 1,000 South Korean adults surveyed in late December by South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Yonhap News Agency reported Wednesday. The United States ranked second with 30.3 percent of the votes. About three-quarters of the respondents said North Korea’s military threats are serious, while only 22.5 percent said the socialist state is likely to reform and open up its economy, the report said.
