It has been reported that President of the U.S Donald Trump will hold a summit with President of South Korea Moon Jae-in in Seoul in early November.
While it hasn't been officially announced yet, Yonhap News have reported that the Korean Blue House (presidential house) has stated that they will make an official announcement once the final schedule for the summit has been confirmed.
While the two heads of state have met previously on three different occasions, the November meeting will be the first time that President Trump will visit Seoul.
The two will not be short of things to discuss, with the current North Korean situation and the potential revisions to the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement expected to be top priorities.
As well as this, there have been rumors that during any visit to South Korea, the President of the U.S may travel to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea.
Depending on where exactly he visits on the DMZ, this could see him come within meters of armed North Korean soldiers.
In November, President Trump is also expected to visit Japan, before heading to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam on Oct. 10 and 11.
Prior to the meeting, senior diplomats from South Korea and the U.S are expected to meet next week to discuss issues and prepare for the trip.
