The White House has expressed understanding that President Park Geun-hye has postponed her planned visit to the U.S. next week during the struggle to contain the outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.
White House spokesman Alistair Baskey said, "President Obama looks forward to welcoming President Park to the White House at a mutually convenient time in the future to discuss the U.S.-Korea alliance and the critical role it plays in assuring regional stability and security."
"As just one example of this partnership, the United States is working closely with our Korean partners to support their response to the MERS cases."
The two leaders had planned to discuss ways to tackle North Korean nuclear issue and other matters.
