Biden Pledges Deeper Ties with Japan and South Korea, Citing Threats by China and DPRK

HeadlineAug 21, 2023

President Biden hailed a “new era” for cooperation between the U.S., South Korea and Japan, as he hosted leaders of the two nations at Camp David Friday. It was the first such meeting between the three countries as South Korea and Japan pursue a rapprochement in the face of what they called “dangerous and aggressive behavior” by China in the South China Sea. The three heads of state also discussed North Korea. This is President Biden.

President Joe Biden: “We’re doubling down on information sharing, including on the DPRK’s missile launches and cyber activities, strengthening our ballistic missile defense cooperation. And critically — critically — we’ve all committed to swiftly consult with each other in response to threats to any one of our countries from whatever source that occurs.”
