Biden writes rare op-ed on denuclearization and Korean War family separations

Biden addressed South Korea and Korean Americans at large in an unprecedented Yonhap News Agency article

U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed to “keep pressing toward a denuclearized North Korea” and to help reunite separated families in an op-ed published in Yonhap News Agency on Friday. 

The article — supposedly the first of its kind to be published in a South Korean media outlet during an election year — comes just days before the Nov. 3 national vote and briefly discusses the Korean Peninsula’s ongoing division.
