Political, military, economic, and civil-society factors are considered at conferences and forums.

It is not easy to form a relationship with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea [DPRK], even when your objectives are purely humanitarian. Over the past few years much more has been learned about human rights violations, the existence of labor camps, and the continuing flow of defectors, refugees and migrants fleeing into China and South Korea for economic and political reasons.

Northeast Asia holds enormous potential for both dispute and development. The continuing uncertainty associated with the past 100 years of colonialism in Northeast Asia and the remnants of the cold war may create tensions and lead to some conflicts in the region. But regional development equaling that of the European Union or NAFTA is also a possibility if the region’s capital, technology, labor force and natural resources are used to complement each other to create a mechanism for multilateral cooperation.

Mongolia's foreign policy towards Northeast Asia can be depicted at two levels: bilateral and regional. At the bilateral level, Mongolia has been concerned with specific gains in relations with individual countries like Russia, China, Japan, U.S. and South Korea for economic and security benefits.

Most Northeast Asian countries pursue highly pragmatic policies in the sphere of economic interactions which makes possible major multilateral projects, above all in such fields as energy and transportation.

In the era of globalization and information, the world expects universities to effectively adapt to changing educational, societal and international environments. The world needs a new generation of work force and young leaders who are equipped to global standards with necessary skills and knowledge. At the same time, the world also needs to overcome through education the sources of hostilities, conflicts and tensions by reducing distrust and misunderstanding among different people, nations and religions.

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK/North Korea) gave notice on January 10, 2003, of withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty. That same year was marked by a coalition of Western countries led by the United States using force against Iraq aimed at a political regime change. Thus, Washington illustrated what could happen to countries that try to obtain nuclear weapons for deterrence.

The Helsinki process, culminating in the Helsinki Act, had led to the European détente, followed by the transformation of the bipolar system of international relations into the multi-polar (or post-bipolar) one. The application of the comprehensive security principles and practices to the Korean settlement (including the Six-Party Talks) could generate a durable and effective solution of the Korean problem, with Korean unification as a final goal. It could also result in the creation of a multilateral system of security and cooperation in Northeast Asia.

As Allied victory gradually became more certain during World War II, the plight of Korea slowly came to be addressed by the West. By 1943, the Franklin Roosevelt administration advocated international trusteeship for postwar Korea to protect the interests of the nations directly concerned with the peninsula and forestall potential conflict.

The division among Koreans living in Japan is a result of the division of the nation itself, and therefore harmony among them would be the model for the unification of the fatherland. The home nation is divided by a national boundary, but the Koreans in Japan are divided even though there is no boundary separating them. They are free to meet and hold dialogues if they choose to do so. That is why if they could come together in harmony they would show the possibility that their home nation could also break down the national boundary and unite.

The world envisages a new paradigm in meeting energy requirements, because many countries around the world have experienced structural changes in the political and economic environment.
