WASHINGTON

US President Joe Biden met the leaders of South Korea and Japan in Madrid on Wednesday to discuss cooperation in the Indo-Pacific and North Korea, according to the White House.

Biden's meeting with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida took place on the sidelines of the NATO summit.

"This was a historic trilateral meeting in which the three Leaders discussed enhancing trilateral cooperation throughout the Indo-Pacific, particularly in regard to addressing the evolving threat posed by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea’s unlawful weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs," the presidential mansion said in a statement.

"They also followed up on their detailed and productive conversations in Seoul and Tokyo last month," it said.

Biden underscored the US' "unshakable commitment" to the defense of Japan and South Korea, it added.
