Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the long history of formation of the Sino-Korean border. The Amnok and Tuman rivers were considered the frontier between Qing China and Korea. The history of the Sino-Korean frontier is a component part of the state relations between the two countries. The permanent cause of the Sino-Korean border problems has been the Korean population residing in the Chinese northeast. Although the frontier dispute between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has been settled, the factors that, in the past, caused frontier conflicts have not yet been resolved. Over a long period, the reason prompting Korean people living near both sides of the Sino-Korean border has been and continues to be an economic one.
