U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to visit Korea for two days from April 25th to the 26th, following his state visit to Japan starting on the 23rd.
Sources in Washington say the U.S. is considering an additional day in Tokyo, since it will be a state visit.
During his fourth visit to Seoul as U.S. president, Obama is expected to reaffirm the Seoul-Washington alliance and discuss North Korea-related security issues with President Park Geun-hye.
The two leaders will then assess the implementation of the Korea-U.S. free trade agreement that has now entered its third year.
President Obama may attend some sort of an educational or cultural event, as well as one involving American troops in Korea.
He'll also visit the Philippines and Malaysia during his Asia tour.
