Prez plans tour of Asia-Pa­cific

New York Daily News - - NEWS - The As­so­ci­ated Press

WASH­ING­TON — Pres­i­dent Trump will take a five-na­tion trip to the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion — in­clud­ing South Korea — in Novem­ber as the U.S. seeks to curb North Korea’s grow­ing nu­clear threat.

The White House said Trump will travel to Ja­pan, South Korea, China, Viet­nam and the Philip­pines from Nov. 3-14, a trip that will also in­clude a stop in Hawaii.

It will be Trump’s first visit to the re­gion as pres­i­dent, and it comes as North Korea moves closer to its goal of hav­ing a nu­clear-tipped mis­sile that could strike the U.S.

The White House said Trump’s visit would “strengthen the in­ter­na­tional re­solve to con­front the North Korean threat and en­sure the com­plete, ver­i­fi­able and ir­re­versible de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of the Korean Penin­sula.”
