What consequences will Yoon Suk-yeol's remarks on Taiwan have?

China-ROK relations are currently under strain due to comments by ROK President Yoon Suk-yeol, who claimed in a recent interview that Taiwan is a "global issue" like that of DPRK. Russia is also angered over comments Yoon made in saying his country could provide weapons to Ukraine. Do these views reflect a change in South Korean foreign policy? What diplomatic consequences could this have? How will this help the South Korean president's upcoming trip to the U.S. in just a few days? Guests in this edition of Dialogue are Wang Cong, editor, The Global Times, Prof. Robert Kelly with the Department of Political Science at Pusan National University, and Mark Sleboda, a Moscow-based international affairs and security analyst.
