South Korea should abandon its goal of unification with North Korea
Abandoning unification increases the chances of better inter-Korean relations, improving the security of the region.
SK's unification goals are hindering the development of peace on the Korean peninsula.
Unification policies limit opportunities and constrain SK's efforts to improve inter-Korean relations. Abandoning unification remedies this problem.
The premise behind SK's desire for unification is primarily based on a shared history and sense of ethnic identity, not political agreement or mutual trust. This inhibits, not enhances negotiations.
