Everyone keeps harping how China and the US are at each others throats, natural idealogical enemies...etc.
And here we have the two sorting out what to do about N Korea should the country collapse politically...

South Korea does not want to unify with North Korea. North Korea has NO economy. Imagine the drain that would cause on the south. It would set them back 20 - 30 years.
South Korea has already stated officially that they would not consider renunification until the North's economy is brought up to speed.
This wouldnt be the same as the Berlin wall coming down. Hundreds of thousands of hungry North Koreans would flood to the South. It would be Chaos.
No, not gonna happen until at least the second quater of the century if ever.
