Biden to meet with South Korea's Moon as North Korea threats loom large

Source: NBC News

WASHINGTON President Joe Biden will host South Korea's President Moon Jae-in at the White House Friday afternoon, his second in-person meeting with a foreign leader since taking office.

Biden's meeting with Moon Friday follows a visit last month from Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, underscoring the administration's focus on the Asia-Pacific region as a foreign policy priority, even as its recent attention has been directed at the conflict between Israel and Gaza.

The two leaders are expected to discuss the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, technology and semiconductor shortages, but North Korea is likely to be a top priority.

Moon has emphasized the importance of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and has indicated that he plans to push Biden to resume talks with North Korea, which now has more nuclear weapons than ever before.
