The former top diplomat who oversaw the Obama administration's self-described "pivot to Asia" says recent moves by North Korea's young dictator Kim Jong-un have triggered unease in China, which has long served as North Korea's main ally in the region.
Assistant Secretary of State Kurt M. Campbell on Tuesday defended the Obama administration's new policy called the "pivot" to Asia from critics who say the shift is largely rhetorical and lacks a substantial program to build U.S. military power in the region.
"Relations have gone from being generally positive at the strategic level among the great powers to extremely difficult," says Kurt M. Campbell, a former assistant secretary of state, who helped develop the "pivot" strategy toward Asia.
Under this administration, it has become "a much more challenging strategic landscape," Mr. Campbell said.
