The meeting between President Moon Jae-in and US President Biden took place before the G20 summit commemorative photo shoot.
Before going to the filming site, the two leaders met in the waiting room and talked briefly for about 2-3 minutes while standing.
The leaders of the Republic of Korea and the United States each met with Pope Francis on the eve of the G20 summit yesterday (30th).
First, President Moon announced that he would visit North Korea if the Pope was invited.
President Biden responded by saying that it was “good news” and that President Moon was “making progress” in resolving the Korean Peninsula issue.
This is the first face-to-face meeting in four months since the G7 summit meeting held in Cornwall, UK in June.
After that, President Moon attended the ‘International Economy and Health’ session of the G20 Summit and expressed his will to serve as a forward base for the ‘Global Vaccine Manufacturing Hub’.
To this end, President Moon emphasized that he will further increase production capacity and spur the development of new vaccines and treatments.
In bilateral talks such as the Korea-EU summit that followed, President Moon promised cooperation on vaccines and requested support for peace building on the Korean Peninsula.
