Donald Trump to visit South Korea on five-country Asian tour

South Korea and Japan are among the destinations for President Donald Trump when he makes a five-nation trip to the Asia Pacific region in November.

The visit comes amid heightened tension in the region over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes.

Mr Trump will travel to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines from November 3 to November 14.

The trip will also include a stop in Hawaii.

Mr Trump's visit will "strengthen the international resolve to confront the North Korean threat" and ensure the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, the White House said.

Mr Trump is also expected to discuss trade ties to the region.

He will attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit.
