DescriptionAs the six-nation talks on North Korea open in Beijing, a new survey of South Koreans shows rising anti-Americanism and a small decline in concern about the threat posed by the Pyongyang regime.

While seven in 10 South Koreans still think the North is a danger to the region, anti-American sentiment in young people has risen 20 percent since last July, according to a report released Saturday by the nonprofit Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.

In July 2002, 51 percent of South Koreans between 18 and 29 had a “somewhat” or “very” unfavorable view of the United States. By May of this year, 71 percent of young South Koreans expressed such views.
