President Takes Four-Day Trip to Asia

South Korea and Japan are on his schedule. 

President Joe Biden departed Thursday on his first trip to Asia since taking office. His four-day trip that includes Seoul, South Korea, and Japan, is meant to underscore the president’s commitment to the region. 

The White House announced that the president might visit the Demilitarized Zone, but South Korean deputy national security adviser said that trip is not on the schedule and that the U.S. president could participate in a different security-related event. 

Meanwhile, North Korea is readying an “imminent” intercontinental ballistic missile test, or possibly a nuclear weapon test. However, the probability of a nuclear detonation this weekend is “evaluated as relatively low,” according to the South Korean official. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For safety for the president and his staff as they travel to Asia.
  • For the president to seek God’s guidance as he interacts with foreign leaders. 
  • For U.S. diplomats and military leaders in the region as they monitor the activities of China and North Korea.
