The Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, has arrived this Thursday at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that is located on the border between the two Koreas after her meeting with the South Korean President, Yoon Suk Yeol, a meeting that takes place a day after that North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of ​​Japan — also known as the East Sea –.

The convoy in which Harris is traveling arrived in the area around 3:06 p.m., according to information from the White House, and he stressed that his visit is aimed at strengthening Washington’s bilateral relations. “Every morning I start the day reading the president’s report and he talks about the main points of conflict,” he asserted.

In this sense, he has indicated that he usually talks with the president, Joe Biden, about “priorities and troops abroad.” “You make commitments come true, so we’re grateful. I know it’s not always easy, but it makes a difference in the lives of a lot of people you may never meet,” he said, referring to the role of US troops in the region.

“American soldiers serve side by side with Koreans. They train together and are committed to working in solidarity with a common goal, which is to maintain security and stability in the region,” he said.

Thus, she has signed one of the bricks of the walls of the facilities and has said she feels “honored to be part of the tradition”. From the border area, Ella Harris has used binoculars to observe the North Korean side of the border.

“The Demilitarized Zone reminds us of the drastic difference between the two sides since the beginning. Since the last seven decades. It has been clear in the south, you see a thriving democracy, innovation… in the north we see a brutal dictatorship, flagrant violations of human rights and an illegal weapons program. The United States and the entire world seek a lasting peace on the Korean peninsula, where North Korea ceases to be a threat,” he said.
