    Background: DEMILITARISED ZONE AND SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA AND BEIJING, CHINA

    Amid increased tension with North Korea, United States Secretary of State George Shultz has pledged continued military support for South Korea. On the third leg of an Asian tour, Mr. Shultz went to the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea on February 7--a visit that coincided with annual US-South Korean military exercises involving 188,000 troops, including 70,000 US personnel. North Korea's response to the ten-weeks of manoeuvres has been to put its armed forces on a 'semi-war' alert, and to accuse Washington to preparing for hostilities in Korea. Before travelling to the zone by helicopter, Mr. Shultz met with South Korea's President Chun Doo-hwan in the presidential mansion. Earlier he held talks with Foreign Minister Lee Bum Suk and told the South Koreans the Reagan Administration would try to boost military aid to their country. On February 5 in Beijing, the US Secretary of State was received by senior Chinese officials, including Vice-Chairman Deng Xiaoping. A welcome was also extended by Prime Minister Zhao Ziyang and over traditional Chinese tea both delegations exchange their views on issues of mutual interest. Although moves to establish military ties were continued by Mr. Shultz, the sensitive problem of Taiwan remained unresolved. The official New China News Agency has quoted unnamed Chinese leaders as saying that unless differences over Taiwan are settled, bi-lateral relations between China and the United States cannot develop on a sound basis.
