Moon and Biden to have phone call this week, despite Trump’s refusal to concede

The South Korean president already congratulated Biden days ago. Now, he has a call with him on Thursday.

Despite political infighting between Democratic and Republican politicians in the U.S., South Korean President Moon Jae-in officially recognized President-elect Joe Biden’s victory a few days ago — and now, the two are expected to have their first phone call as future presidential counterparts.

Moon and Biden will talk on the phone on Thursday, South Korea’s presidential Blue House confirmed to NK News on Wednesday afternoon.
