WASHINGTON (AFP) – South Korean President Moon Jae-In announced on Friday (June 30) that Donald Trump would visit Seoul later this year after issuing an invitation to his US counterpart during talks in Washington.

“I also invited President Trump to visit Korea this year – and he graciously accepted my offer,” the newly-elected Moon told reporters in the White House.

“Mr and Mrs Trump’s visit to Korea will once again demonstrate not only our friendship but also the intimate bond our peoples have come to foster through thick and thin.”
