South Korea's Moon to meet Trump in April in Washington

29 March 2019

U.S. President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet in Washington in April, South Korea's presidential office said on Friday. Moon's Senior Secretary of Public Relations Yoon Do-han told reporters that Moon and First Lady Kim Jung-sook will be visiting the United States from April 10 to 11 at the invitation of Trump and First Lady Melania.

The two leaders will have in-depth discussions about ways to strengthen the U.S.-South Korea alliance and establish a peace regime on the Korean Peninsula through complete denuclearization, Yoon added. Moon has vowed to act as a mediator between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but that plan is in doubt in the wake of the summit's collapse in Hanoi.
