In a joint press conference with incoming South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol, Biden stressed that the goal remains “the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.”

This year, North Korea has tested several missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Former US President Donald Trump held three highly influential meetings with Kim between June 2018 and June 2019 to urge North Korea to reduce armaments.
