"President Biden looks forward to working with President Moon to further strengthen our alliance and expand our close cooperation," the White House said in a statement.

The event will mark the second in-person summit with a foreign leader of Biden's presidency, which began in January.

Both meetings have been with Asian allies. The first, earlier this month, was with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

Moon and Biden are expected to discuss China's rise, the Korean Peninsula, economic and trade cooperation, and response to global challenges such as climate change and COVID-19.
