Published Published Just now
US President Joe Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan meets his South Korean and Japanese counterparts – Suh Hoon and Shigeru Kitamura – at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
There, Sullivan will share the US evaluation of the country’s North Korea policy with the two allied countries. The evaluation is close to a conclusion, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ned Price said on Thursday, when he informed about the upcoming meeting.
– Nuclear disarmament remains the core of US policy toward North Korea. We also know that any approach to North Korea, if it is to be effective, must be of such a nature that we must carry it out with our close allies, Price said.
The Annapolis meeting will take place physically, and the meeting will be the first trilateral meeting Sullivan attends after he took over as national security adviser.
