White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated that the visit “celebrates the 70th anniversary of the U.S.-ROK alliance, which is critical to advancing peace, stability, and prosperity for our two countries, the Indo-Pacific, and around the world.“

She added, “President Biden and President Yoon will highlight the importance and enduring strength of the ironclad U.S.-ROK alliance as well as the United States’ unwavering commitment to the ROK. The Presidents will discuss our shared resolve to deepen and broaden our political, economic, security, and people-to-people ties.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and first lady as they host the South Korean president and his wife.
  • For President Biden and President Yoon as they discuss the alliance of the two nations and cooperation in addressing threats from North Korea.
  • For wisdom for the president and his foreign policy advisers as Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea continue aggressive maneuvers.
