US President Joe Biden

Joe Biden (Joseph Robin Biden) is an American politician. Joe Biden was born on November 20, 1942 and arrived in South Korea today.

This is his first visit to Asia as president, AFP reported.

The visit is part of a tour of two countries, including Japan, which will last until May 24.

However, this tour is overshadowed by a possible North Korean nuclear test, notes AFP, quoted by BTA.

The US president is expected to visit the plant of South Korean technology giant Samsung in Pyongyang, south of Seoul, today, where he will meet for the first time with the new president Yun Suk-yol.

Earlier this morning, Yun Suk-yol told reporters that the Biden tour was a good opportunity to establish stronger relations between Seoul and Washington.
