WASHINGTON: US President Joe Biden said in his Provisional National Security Strategy Guidelines that the United States will strengthen its diplomatic power to reduce the threat
“We will empower our diplomats to work to reduce the threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, which are facing the Republic of Korea and Japan,” he said in his guidelines.
According to the Yonhap news agency, the guidelines reaffirmed his earlier commitment to putting diplomacy at the heart of what the US would do to deal with North Korea.
The interim guidance comes shortly after Secretary of State Antony Blinken outlined prior eight top foreign policy for the United States. Many issues include the spread of Covid-19, climate change and Chinese aggression, but did not directly address the North Korean threat.
The President of the United States issued a statement today that “I have issued this Provisional Guidelines to express my vision for how the United States will engage with the world.”
