WASHINGTON, May 22 — US President Joe Biden and South Korean President Moon Jae-in yesterday expressed a desire to engage North Korea in diplomacy in trying to reduce tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes.

“We both are deeply concerned about the situation,” Biden said at the start of a joint news conference with Moon, the second foreign leader to visit the White House since Biden took office.

Biden said the two countries will have a “shared approach” to North Korea and that he and Moon shared a willingness to engage diplomatically with the North “to take pragmatic steps to reduce tensions.”

Biden said a State Department official, Sung Kim, would serve as a special US envoy for North Korea. Moon said the envoy would help explore whether North Korea is willing to engage diplomatically and he hoped for a positive response from Pyongyang.

North Korea thus far has rebuffed US entreaties for diplomacy since Biden took over from then-President Donald , who held three summits with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
