For months, the world has been looking with expectations at the USA presidential election. Now that Joe BIDEN has been announced as the 46th President of the United States, what will be the impact for the Korean peninsula?

During the past couple years, North Korea and South Korea's relationship has been swinging between tensions and appeasement, impacted by Trump's administration, world politics and the economic situation. With the election of President Joe BIDEN, some drastic changes are to be expected.
