Apparently, China has been encouraging South Korea and US to have a dialogue with North Korea and resolve the conflict. Consequently, the preparations are under way to bring senior North Korean officials to the United States for talks with former US officials. North Korea has been put under various sanctions for "half a century" now but the communist state is surviving by placing an emphasis on "self-sufficiency". North Korea is hostile to the US as the latter is overtly supporting South Korea in its war with North Korea. As Russia and China have soft corner with North Korea, they also have sounded that too much of US intervention in the region may force Beijing and Moscow to deploy their own joint missile defense system. There is another bone of contention between China and the US is the claim of China over South China Sea. While Russia has supported the Chinese claims (over South China Sea), the United States, though has no territorial claims in the region, but has supported the claim by Taiwan, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and Philippines. Consequently, keeping in mind the strategic importance of the region and also with a view to keep Russia and China under continuous check, US has firmly installed its military and naval base in South Korea and has taken the responsibility of latter's defense from North Korean and their ally's probable military attack. Had these Super-powers (US, Russia, China) sincerely desired, would have resolved the Korean Conflict long back through diplomatic efforts alone. But it seems that dragging their feet on the issue and continuing with their military presence in the region, on some or other pretext, suits more in the schemes of the things of these Super Powers.
