SEOUL -- Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has decried U.S. President Donald Trump's treatment of ally South Korea in an article published by the Yonhap News Agency.

As president, "I'll stand with South Korea, strengthening our alliance to safeguard peace in East Asia and beyond, rather than extorting Seoul with reckless threats to remove our troops," the former vice president wrote in the piece dated Thursday.
