Presidential debate: Biden calls for nuclear-free Korean Peninsula

Trump says Obama tried to meet Kim Jong Un but failed

NEW YORK -- A Joe Biden administration would only meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un if he would pledge to reduce his nuclear capacity, the former vice president said in the second and final presidential debate on Thursday, arguing the Korean Peninsula should be a nuclear-free zone.

This would mark a return to a more traditional foreign policy and a shift away from President Donald Trump's unconventional path of building a personal relationship with Kim to tame Pyongyang.
