During her trip to the Korean Peninsula’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), Kamala Harris appeared during a speech and said the US has a “strong alliance” with “the Republic of North Korea.”
She also added, “it is an alliance that is strong and enduring.”

She then went on to refer to South Korea correctly saying, “I cannot state enough that the commitment of the United States to the defense of the Republic of Korea is iron-clad, and that we will do everything in our power to ensure that it has meaning in every way that the words suggest.”
The visit to the DMZ is the concluding stop along Harris’ tour of Asia Pacific countries. While visiting the DMZ, North Korea performed ballistic missal tests, showing their disapproval of Harris’ visit.
Harris also met with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol, saying the US-South Korea alliance is a “linchpin of security and prosperity.”
The White House responded to North Korea ballistic missal test as something that was “not unusual.” Jean-Pierre said during a recent press conference, “As you know, North Korea has a history of doing these types of tests.”
