A number of countries, including Japan and the United Kingdom, are trying to manoeuvre between their interests and their desire not to offend their main political ally. Meanwhile, South Korea is openly fighting for its rights and points out that, although the US is the instigator of this conflict, its consequences must be borne by others.
