Trump Leaves Japan, Heads to South Korea

TOKYO – US President Donald Trump left Japan on Tuesday for South Korea, the second stop on his 11-day tour of Asia.

The aircraft carrying Trump, the Air Force One, took off Tuesday from Yokota US Air Base in Western Tokyo, at 10:06 am local time (0106 GMT).

Trump is due to land at Osan US Air Base, west of Seoul, where he is scheduled to have lunch with US troops deployed there.

The president will also meet with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in in Seoul to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Pyongyang has conducted a series of nuclear tests this year, which have raised tensions on the Korean peninsula, leading to UN sanctions and increasingly hostile rhetoric from Trump.

On Monday in Tokyo, Trump said that “the era of strategic patience is over” with regards to North Korea’s nuclear weapons ambitions.

On Wednesday, the US president is expected to deliver a speech to the South Korean parliament before heading to China for the next leg of his trip, which also includes stops at the APEC and ASEAN summits in Vietnam and the Philippines, respectively.
