April 30 2021 The U.S. White House said on April 30 that the Biden administration has completed its policy assessment of North Korea and will seek diplomacy with the North in a “pragmatic manner.”

White House press secretary Psaki told the media the same day, the Biden administration will not focus on achieving a “big deal”, will not rely on “strategic patience”, but the pursuit of “adjusted pragmatic approach”, the United States will seek to engage in diplomacy with North Korea, and focus on promoting the United States, allies and the front-line deployment of troops security progress.

She also said that the U.S. policy goal remains to achieve the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, the U.S. side will continue to north Korea policy with South Korea, Japan and other allies and partners to continue discussions.

U.S. President Joe Biden said in March that the North Korean nuclear issue was the top foreign policy issue facing the U.S. government. Mr. Pusaki has previously said the Biden administration has repeatedly tried to engage with North Korea, but the North has not responded. Choe Sang-ji, north Korea’s first deputy foreign minister, said North Korea would not engage and engage in any form of dialogue with the United States as long as the United States did not cancel its hostile policy toward the North.

The so-called “big deal” and “strategic patience” refer to the policy toward North Korea under the Trump and Obama administrations, respectively. On June 12, 2018, North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un and Trump held their first north Korean-American summit in Singapore, signing a joint statement on the denuclearization of the peninsula and other issues, saying the two countries will establish a new type of relationship and work together to build a lasting and stable peace mechanism on the Korean peninsula. However, the second summit meeting between the two sides in Hanoi, Vietnam, in February 2019 was fruitless, and negotiations on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula were deadlocked.
