“We are preparing for all contingencies, including the possibility that such a provocation would occur while we are in Korea or in Japan,” Sullivan said.

Biden will forego a visit to the Korean Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, while visiting South Korea, according to new press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Biden did visit the DMZ in 2013 while serving as vice president.

The President will visit Asia for the first time during his presidency beginning Thursday.

Biden is first scheduled to visit South Korea to meet new President Yoon Suk Yeol.

From there, Biden will visit Japan and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
