It is expected that both sides will discuss the South Korea and the United States’ response strategies and situation management with regards to North Korea’s provocation and in the field of economic security, the two sides will coordinate cooperation between the two countries on matters such as strengthening the supply chain.  On issues of international concern, South Korea’s contribution measures will be discussed.

The information source reiterated that the most important thing is for the two presidents to establish a relationship of trust as soon as possible to lay the foundation for the restoration of the ROK-U.S. alliance.  The Office of the President went on to explain that President Yoon Seok-wyeon intends to raise the ROK-U.S. alliance to the highest level in history, with the aim of both sides sharing the vision of strengthening the comprehensive strategic alliance and rebuilding the joint defense system.
