The three countries will discuss the “denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula” and the “final status of negotiations with North Korea“, which celebrates its 73rd anniversary, at this summit.
At the summit, where the economic situation of North Korea, which has kept its borders closed against the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19), will also be discussed, humanitarian aid, including vaccine supply, will be discussed through international organizations.
At the end of April, the Biden administration announced its policy assessment towards North Korea, which it described as “measured and useful diplomacy” and aimed at increasing the security of the United States and its allies.
The tripartite summit, which brought together senior officials, was held in Seoul, the capital of South Korea, in June, upon the call of the US President Joe Biden’s administration.
