Biden's Asia policy

White House seeks 'denuclearization of Korean Peninsula': Psaki

Spokesperson says administration is prepared for 'some form of diplomacy'

NEW YORK -- White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the Biden administration is pursuing the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, a position that is in line with South Korea's position and possibly a step back from previous calls for the denuclearization of North Korea.

At the daily press briefing, Psaki was asked about a report by Beyond Parallel on Tuesday that carries a satellite image showing North Korea moving its submersible missile test barge located at the Sinpo South Shipyard. The report says the move could signal preparations for a forthcoming submarine-launched ballistic missile test.
