On the occasion of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly that will take place in New York the following month, President Yoon Suk-yeol is anticipated to meet with Vice President Joe Biden of the United States.

According to a statement released by the White House on Thursday (local time), Vice President Biden intends to go to New York for three days beginning on September 18 in order to participate in the United Nations General Assembly. On September 19 and 20, it is anticipated that he would attend the summit and participate in meetings with the heads of state of the main countries.

Since it is anticipated that President Yoon will also attend the United Nations General Assembly for the first time after taking office, it is possible that he will meet with Vice President Biden in New York. This would be their second meeting since they had a bilateral summit in May in Seoul.

When United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was in Seoul earlier this month, he asked Yoon to attend the United Nations General Assembly on his behalf. Yoon informed him that the Korean government will play its part in the issues of climate change, development cooperation, establishing peace, and human rights befitting of its standing.

It is anticipated that when the two presidents of Korea and the US meet, they will discuss a variety of topics, including the nuclear weapons program of North Korea, efforts to establish peace on the Korean peninsula, and the expansion of economic cooperation between the two countries.

In addition to this, it is quite possible that they will discuss the “audacious approach” that President Yoon has offered with the intention of denuclearizing North Korea. If North Korea agreed to give up its nuclear weapons, the Yoon government vowed to provide economic help. It has been publicly rejected by North Korea, which also said that it would never meet face to face with the Yoon government to discuss its disarmament.

Ned Price, a spokesperson for the United States Department of State, said at a daily press conference the previous week, “We have been clear about our support for the daring or the ambitious plan that the South Korean government has put up.”

“It’s a plan that’s entirely consistent with our approach to the DPRK’s nuclear weapons program and to its ballistic missile program in that it sees the potential for practical, incremental advancements toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” added Price. “It’s a plan that sees the potential for practical, incremental advancements toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
