(New York = Yonhap News) Reporter Han Ji-hoon = Reporter Lee Dong-hwan = The Office of the President said, “A kind of ‘Plan B’ was made in the meeting between President Yoon Seok-yeol and US President Joe Biden in New York on the 21st (local time), which was not a formal meeting but a short conversation. It was working,” he said.

It is explained that President Biden’s diplomatic schedule was unexpectedly changed and the second Korea-USA summit, which was originally expected, could not be held.

A high-ranking official in the presidential office said in a local press center briefing at midnight on the 22nd, “If President Biden’s schedule had not been changed, it was judged that there was a possibility, but it was not successful.”

President Biden went directly to Washington DC instead of New York for reasons such as domestic political schedules after attending Queen Elizabeth II’s director general in London on the 19th.

While acknowledging that “the original purpose was to hold a summit if possible,” said the official, “a crisis has arisen, and we have also considered practical measures rather than formal meetings.”

“After much review, we decided that the meeting with President Biden was very likely (to be a conversation),” he added.
