South Korean President Park Geun-hye and President Obama no doubt will look to project a unified front when the two leaders meet Tuesday at the White House to discuss how best to address the North Korean nuclear threat.
The Obama administration faces an uphill battle in its growing effort to convince China to play a more active role in steering North Korea away from provoking a military conflict on the divided Korean Peninsula, foreign policy insiders say.
North Korea's military ratcheted up its threat to carry out a nuclear strike on the U.S. to new heights Thursday — just hours after the Pentagon announced the deployment of an American ballistic missile defense system to Guam.
"That's exactly the question that the U.S. doesn't want to answer," Mr. Snyder said.
"My understanding is that both sides feel like by providing a two-year extension [to the existing nuclear accord], they're trying to take it off the agenda for this meeting," said Scott A. Snyder, who heads the program on U.S.-Korea Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington. "They're essentially pushing the can down the road."
