South Korean president arrives in Washington


WASHINGTON: South Korea’s President Moon Jae-In arrived in Washington Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) on his first overseas trip since taking office, for planned talks with his US counterpart Donald Trump. Moon, who backs engagement with nuclear-armed North Korea, was to meet Thursday with Trump during his first foreign outing since being sworn in last month after a landslide election win. Late Wednesday, he was scheduled to take part in a wreath-laying ceremony at a war memorial in Quantico, Virginia, and later was to attend a summit with Korean and American business leaders. His agenda on Thursday includes meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and an evening visit with the US president and First Lady Melania Trump, including a reception and dinner.
