The Alliance continues to work towards our shared goals of ensuring peace, stability, and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula and in the Indo-Pacific region. We have built strong economic relations and are cooperating in the field of science and health, another example of which is our joint work in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences. We honor the memory of the US and Republic of Korea military personnel and all who fought with them, and we appreciate their bravery and sacrifice during the Korean War.”
