Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – US President Joe Biden is currently in Asia. He visited South Korea over the weekend and is now leaving for Japan.
During his visit, he gave a “simple message” to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. This was transmitted on Sunday (22/5/2022), on the last day of his arrival in Seoul.
The message was not a warning of war as North Korean gun tests intensify. He just said “Hello … period”, he told reporters quoted in CNBC InternationalMonday.
He also admitted that he was not worried about the latest nuclear test conducted by North Korea. It should be noted that the test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was the first in five years by the “Hermit Country”.
“We are ready for whatever North Korea does,” Biden said.
Meanwhile, Biden and the new president of South Korea, Yoon Suk-yeol, have agreed to consider the largest military exercise in the region. In fact, it could potentially deploy more U.S. nuclear-capable weapons in the region in response to South Korean weapons tests.
North Korea’s relations with South Korea and the United States are warm. The Korean War, which lasted from 1950 to 1953, ended in an armistice rather than a peace treaty.
Earlier, Biden traveled to Asia to promote “common thinking” in order to curb China’s influence in the growing region. Including putting pressure on Russia over the war in Ukraine.
In Japan, Biden will meet QUAD, which includes Japan, India and Australia. This group often dubbed the Western media “NATO in Asia” specifically to fight China.
