S Korea’s Moon: N Korean leader Kim to visit Seoul ‘soon’

SEOUL, November 1: South Korean President Moon Jae-in says North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will “soon” visit Seoul.
Moon didn’t provide any other details about the trip during a speech on the economy given before the parliament on Thursday.
Moon has previously said that Kim told him he would visit Seoul within this year when the leaders met in Pyongyang in September.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Moon was repeating his previous statement or if he had new details about Kim’s trip.
Moon also says a second North Korea-US summit is “near at hand.” He says Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to visit North Korea and that Kim is to travel to Russia soon.
