Moon can­cels visit to Mex­ico

The Korea Times - - NATIONAL -

Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in has can­celed a two-day trip to Mex­ico this month, Cheong Wa Dae an­nounced Fri­day, after Chile pulled out of host­ing an Asia-Pa­cific Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion (APEC) sum­mit.

Moon was sched­uled to visit Mex­ico Nov. 13 and 14 for talks with Pres­i­dent An­dres Manuel Lopez Obrador on his way to San­ti­ago for the an­nual APEC ses­sion.

His Mex­ico visit has been “un­avoid­ably” can­celed due to the Chilean govern­ment’s with­drawal from host­ing the APEC meet­ing, Cheong Wa Dae spokes­woman, Ko Min-jung, said.

“The change of sched­ule has been made in con­sul­ta­tions with the Mex­i­can govern­ment, and the Mex­i­can side has ex­pressed its un­der­stand­ing,” the spokes­woman added.
