On the top-right: North Korea, South Korea
The woman is South Korea’s President Park Geun-Hye
The man is North Korea’s President Kim Jong Un
On the bird (representing the U.S.): Peace
Caption: It’s good that our leaders say “it’s not done yet.”

[This seems to represent a very Thai view about the West, particularly the U.S., and its role in the world. While the American might view the U.S. as a guarantor of peace, those in a smaller nation like Thailand value an approach of disinterest in other nation’s affairs.
Thus, the cartoonist appears to view the U.S. as trying to intervene or intervene in the South-North Korea conflict in a partisan way, preventing those countries from ending their conflict. Particularly in Thailand, it would viewed that the U.S. maintains its position in Korea (and the region) as a counterbalance to Chinese power.]
