Biden is about to be president, and Moon wants him to undo Trump’s mistakes

In a New Year’s press conference, President Moon Jae-in says Kim Jong Un is willing to continue denuclearization talks

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may have unveiled his new weapons wishlist earlier this month, but South Korean President Moon Jae-in is still urging Washington to pick up where Trump left off in terms of diplomacy and denuclearization.

On Monday, Moon urged President-elect Joe Biden to honor the 2018 Trump-Kim Singapore agreement and keep pursuing denuclearization with the DPRK at an annual New Year’s press conference. Biden is expected to be inaugurated in just two days on Jan. 21.
