Protests Planned in South Korea Ahead of US Presidentís Visit

SEOUL Ė South Korean civil groups said on Friday they have called for demonstrations over the weekend around the country to protest against a visit by US President Donald Trump next week.

At least 1,000 people are expected in central Seoul for an anti-Trump protest, Yonhap news agency reported, citing the organizers.

Other rallies are expected to take place in cities including Gwangju, Daejeon, Ulsan and Changwon.

Trump will visit South Korea between Nov. 7-8 for a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. The agenda is set to include North Koreaís nuclear threats and the bilateral free trade pact.

South Korean progressive groups have blamed Trumpís policy of sending strategic military assets to the region and his belligerent comments to the regime led by Kim Jong-un for increasing tensions with North Korea.

The civil groups have called on Moon to halt joint military exercises with the US to try to get Pyongyang to take part in talks.

Pro-US rallies led by conservative groups and supporters of the South Korea-US alliance are also expected to take place to welcome Trump, Yonhap reported.
