U.S. President Joe Biden greeted North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with a single word when asked by reporters if he wanted to convey to the DPRK leader .
“Hello. And a dot (Hello. Period.— РБК)»,— Biden said. This question was asked to the American leader during his trip to South Korea as part of an Asian tour.
Biden was also asked if he was worried about the actions that the DPRK might take during his tour, including a possible nuclear test. “We are ready for everything that North Korea does. We have thought out our response to whatever they do. So I'm not concerned, if that's what you mean,” — he said.
The fact that the DPRK authorities may conduct nuclear tests during Joe Biden's visit to South Korea was previously reported by US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. He told reporters about this with reference to American intelligence data.
“Our intelligence indicates the real possibility of conducting missile tests, including long-range missile tests, or nuclear tests, or, frankly, both, before, during, or after the president’s trip to the region,” Sullivan said, noting that Washington is preparing for all contingencies.
