Source Notes Obama Planning Trip To Korean DMZ

03.12.12 09:01 PM

U.S. President Barack Obama is likely to visit the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that divides North and South Korea later this month, said the Yonhap News Agency, citing a diplomatic source in Seoul.

NewsCore reported that the President will visit South Korea for the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, and is expected to tour the DMZ prior to leaving. This would mark the first visit to the infamous region by Obama.

According to the news outlet, Obama’s expected trip to the DMZ comes just weeks after the U.S. and North Korea both announced that the Asian country had “agreed to implement a moratorium on long-range missile launches, nuclear tests and nuclear activities at [the North's major nuclear facility] Yongbyon, including uranium enrichment activities.”

NewsCore reported that the North Korean government also agreed to inspections by members of the International Atomic Energy Agency to verify and monitor the moratorium on uranium enrichment activities.

The Agence France-Presse reported that the White House proposed the DMZ visit to showcase the strength of the U.S.-South Korean alliance and to address a message to the regime of North Korea.
