8:07 am
a professor of international studies at dong seo university and joins us live from both on the in south korea. how do you think north chris, likely to react to biden's garrison's dick approaches offer of talks on one hand and expanded security with south korea on the other? well, 1st off, thank you for having me on the show. laura. i think that north korea is not going to have a response for us anytime soon. or of course, dealing with a cold at 19 o. make right now, that's a very serious crisis for them. and they haven't really reached out to the bind administration as of yet. so i think they're waiting to gauge what is going on with the new president of south korea president units like y'all. and they already know a lot about buying from his ass dealings in the u. s. senate and his vice president . so i think they're just going to sort of buy their time and see what cooperative
8:08 am
efforts may be in the future. okay, thank security is one big issue that's been addressed in south korea economy, economy and, and trade corporation is another. and that's going to be quite a focus moving forward, isn't it? yeah, this is where we're seeing sort of a split. we've got as president biden joins for president, june, always seen them discuss traditional security issues. that of course, the alliance has been facing for many decades. and now the new economic security initiatives that both presidents are very keen to address and both design or greater cooperation. so as they move forward, i think we're going to continue to see this, the sort of 2 pronged approach and dealing with 2 very different styles of security cooperation. both that are very necessary for south korea and for the united states as a regional partner. i next up a full biden is japan. how much of an opportunity is this for south korea and japan

8:10 am
what's paintings? response so far? what they're unhappy, they have been a little worried. i think over the course of the south korean election for the past many months about what kind of president present you will be a he is a political deal fight. but he does seem to have a very clear vision of what he wants, as far as a strategic vision for south korea. and that has to align much more closely with united states and what he has called the a global comprehensive strategic alliance. and of course, these are things that china is not going to do to favorably. they would like south korea to act much more independently of the united states. and therefore they're going to keep, i think, voicing their displeasure and diplomatic terms towards the new unit administration . showing them on a great to get your views. thanks very much for joining us here on out to sarah. really well as sean just mentioned, north korea is
