President Biden outlined the terms of the meeting with Kim Jong-Un

The US President spoke about the results of the talks with the presidents of South Korea.

President Joe Biden met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday. The main topic of the talks was joint action on nuclear-armed North Korea.

“We are both deeply concerned about the situation,” Biden said during a joint news conference following the meeting.

According to him, the United States and South Korea are ready for “diplomatic cooperation” with the DPRK, to reduce tensions and achieve the ultimate goal of both countries – the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Biden also announced the appointment of a US special envoy to North Korea. He became a career diplomat Sung Kim, now working as Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs.

Biden described Kim as “a professional diplomat with deep political knowledge.” Kim previously served as the US ambassador to South Korea, the Philippines, and Indonesia.

The US President stressed, “the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is an incredibly difficult task,” which the last four US administrations failed to achieve.

Without mentioning the name of Donald Trump, who previously met with the North Korean dictator, Biden added that he would not repeat the previous experience. Moreover, he will meet with Kim Jong-un only if concrete steps for denuclearization are agreed upon in advance.

Biden also said that the United States would provide vaccines against COVID-19 for 550 thousand South Korean soldiers.

The meeting between Biden and Moon Jae-in took place against the backdrop of another round of conflict between Israel and Hamas militants. Answering questions from reporters, the US president expressed support for Israel, and added that he “prays that the ceasefire agreement will continue.” Biden also expressed the need to ensure the safety of the residents of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.
