South Korean President Moon Jae-in is hoping Friday’s White House meeting with President Joe Biden will lead to renewed diplomatic urgency by the U.S. to curb North Korea’s nuclear program. The White House, however, is signaling that it is taking a longer view on one of the most difficult foreign policy challenges Biden faces. The meeting will be just the second in-person foreign leader session for Biden because of the coronavirus pandemic. White House officials say North Korea will be a central focus of talks. Vaccine distribution, climate change and regional security concerns spurred by China are also high on the president’s list.
