NorthEast AsiaA collection of resources on NorthEast Asia - featuring China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, Russia (also in Eastern Europe), South Korea and Taiwan
The definition of NorthEast Asia is not static, but often changes according to the context in which it is discussed. In geopolitics, the Council on Foreign Relations defines NorthEast Asia as Japan, North Korea, and South Korea. China and Russia are often included in geopolitical discussion of the region to the extent their interests and policies interact with those of Japan and Koreas. The Sea of Japan, the Yellow Sea, and sometimes the East China Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk are included in discussions of the region. In common usage, however, the term NorthEast Asia typically includes China. In this form, the core countries constituting NorthEast Asia are China, Japan, North Korea, and South Korea.
