During the conversation, neither the American congressmen nor the South Korean representative talked about Taiwan, according to the presidential office.
In the last years, Seoul has tried to find the balance between Washington and Beijing as the rivalry between the two major economies of the world increased. Yoon, who is a conservative, assumed the presidency in May with the promise of reinforcing the military alliance with Washington and assuming a more firm posture towards the provocations of the neighboring country.
