Moon, Biden to discuss climate on Earth DayBy Choi Si-young

“The US is driving the discussion on the agenda,” a Seoul official said, pointing out the US-hosted gathering will mark Washington’s return to the carbon-cutting commitment. Biden reversed the Trump administration’s decision to walk away from the Paris Agreement on reducing carbon emissions.
Seoul has already invited Washington to the upcoming P4G summit, another global initiative to be held in May to support green projects in public and private sectors. The meeting Korea is set to host two months later will discuss helping developing nations to use technologies for green economic growth, the Seoul official said.
Seoul and Washington are in close consultation over issues beyond climate change, the Seoul official added, saying the allies’ national security advisers are going over policy on North Korea. The Biden administration said it would engage allies as much as possible to work out their differences.
“We have yet to respond to the invitation. We’re working on it with the US,” Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kang Min-seok said.
