Chinese authorities are trying to keep South Korea from joining a US-led technology alliance

The US's attempts to maintain technological hegemony are reflected in an anti-China alliance initiative that would include Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea.

According to Business Korea, the head of the South Korean Ad Hoc Committee on Semiconductor Industry, Yang Hyang-ja, met earlier this week, at which the latter expressed concern about the US's desire to involve South Korea in a technological alliance, abusing his position, and the Ambassador of China believed that the country's cooperation with South Korea should be devoid of external influence.

South Korea's authorities must decide to join the US-led alliance before the end of next month, and according to the Chinese Communist Party, South Korea's participation in the alliance will be like "economic suicide." The country is bound by serious trade, Korean memory producers have large enterprises in China, but South Korea's import of advanced technology and equipment is heavily dependent on the US, so the solution will be very difficult for the country's leadership.
