REGIONAL CONFLICTS: Many countries in the region are continuously in process of some conflicts either with their neighbor countries or within the country with different states. We will discuss the conflicts regarding North Korea, South Korea, China and Japan. The great conflicts that are taking place in South Asia include the tensions between North and South Korea. The great Korean War refers to North and South Korea which took place in June 25 1950. The main Factor which took them to a war stage was to differentiate these two states with their respective governments. North Korea which is ruled in a military form of government, Dictatorship style while the South Korea has a democratic form of government. These two states before the war were trying at the 38 parallel negotiating their terms to make sure the elections in the entire Korea. These negotiations were at end stage when the North Korean Army entered in South Korean Borders and the war begins. During these conflicts there mere many other external factors involved regarding war in Korea which also includes china and Japan. China was in favor of  N.korea where as Japan was in favor of South Korea. The result of division of Korea was also due to harsh policies ser by Japan for the people of Korea. Koreans wanted to be free from political interventions from outside factors. It became extremely terrible as the Soviet union became an important factor and announced war from Japan and support the Koreans on their behalf. USA and Russia were also taking part to defeat Japan after the wart ended wit Germany. The US forces arrived early in September in 1945 in Korea to fight against Japan for its harsh attitude towards Korean peoples. USSR was also one of the major force in this whole war where it was supporting Northern Korea and declared that it would support North Korea for fighting against Japanese forces where as USA was on Southern Korea against Japanese forces and supporting Koreans. Soviet forces which were used afterwards against Russia were also playing an important role in this whole situation were they were using all their forces in Northern part of Korea before US intervene and make the lobby of them. The US forces entered in Korea with a vision to rule this state in their own manner but the presence of Soviet forces doesn’t allow them to do so. Soviet forces were direct threat to US forces. They came to restore many Japanese political administrators which were against the wishes of Korean people. Their objective was to restore all the activists and appoint them on their actual powers according to US strategic plans. Then US formed another policy for the people of Korea were to refuse the existing political organizations which were operating in North Korea so as to obey the wishes and wants of the people of Korea. Another conflict was entering of China into this war and making aggressive steps against US actions. Chinese intervention was one of the biggest challenges to all the factors who were involved in this war. Through this the peace of Asia was at very higher risk all other countries were posing them certain threats which were not acceptable to many countries located in this region.
