President Moon Jae-in is vowing to revive the inter-Korean peace process and address the vaccine issue during his upcoming summit with President Biden.
The South Korean leader is scheduled to visit Washington sometime next month.
Along with efforts to get the clock ticking again on the Korean Peninsula peace process, I will direct all efforts to step up close cooperation between Korea and the U.S. on issues including economic cooperation, response to COVID-19 and vaccines.
The remarks came on Monday during a meeting with top aides amid rising uncertainties in global vaccine supply due to blood clot concerns and U.S. plans to increase vaccine doses to three.
South Korea aims to inoculate 12 million people in the first half of the year.
