South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be visiting U.S. President Joseph R. Biden Jr. at the White House on May 21, the White House said on Thursday.
“President Biden looks forward to welcoming Republic of Korea President Moon Jae-in to the White House on May 21, 2021,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. “President Moon’s visit will highlight the ironclad alliance between the United States and the Republic of Korea, and the broad and deep ties between our governments, people, and economies.”
Psaki added that President Biden “looks forward to working with President Moon to further strengthen our alliance and expand our close cooperation.”
It will be the second President Biden will be hosting a foreign leader in person since his inauguration in January, after first receiving the Prime Minister of Japan Yoshihide Suga in the Oval Office for an official working visit on April 16.
