Why, then, was trusteeship considered to be an appropriate solution for Korea by Roosevelt and the other Allied leaders? There are two components to answering this question apart from the obvious one of Korea’s status as a territory detached from an enemy state at the end of World War II: namely, her status as a nation considered to be at a relatively high level of development and her historical significance as a buffer state for her neighboring Great Powers. The first consideration was made in light of the objective facts of Korea’s history, namely her long history as an independent state prior to her annexation by Japan in 1910 and the presence of official diplomatic relationships prior to 1905 between Korea and Powers such as the United States, Russia, and Britain.
The second component, namely Korea’s importance as a buffer state, seems like an obvious consideration but one that has not been given adequate attention in this connection. Roosevelt apparently thought that, given the historical rivalries between the neighboring Great Powers over Korea (China vs. Japan, Russia vs. ), a trusteeship administered jointly by his four great policemen (the United States, USSR, Britain, and China) would be a way to prevent a recurrence of such rivalries leading again to war, as such a collective trusteeship would presumably put an end to the old politics of spheres of influence and balance of power over the Korean peninsula.
