“The United States and the Republic of Korea are allies with a long history of shared sacrifice,” Biden said earlier Friday at a bilateral meeting with Moon. “I look forward to continuing our discussion today here and growing the U.S.-[Republic of Korea] relationship further as we take on new challenges and we take them on together.”
Vice President Harris met with Moon first in the morning. “Our alliance is critical to peace, security and prosperity in Northeast Asia, the Indo-Pacific and around the world,” she told him.
Biden, Harris and Moon also attended a Medal of Honor ceremony for a 94-year-old Korean War veteran, an honor Biden said was “70 years overdue.”
