U.S. President Obama expected to return royal seals during Korea trip Updated: 2014-04-15 21:57:21 KST

It's official.
U.S. President Barack Obama will visit Korea on April 25th and 26th.
The presidential office in Seoul says Presidents Park and Obama are expected to
discuss ways to develop their strategic alliance, as well as how to cooperate more closely on North Korea's nuclear issue.
South Korean media is also reporting that the U.S. president will likely arrive in Seoul along with a set of Korea's nine lost royal seals from the late 19th century.
The artifacts, considered national treasures, are thought to have been looted by U.S. troops during the Korean War.
Obama's upcoming Asia tour, which also includes stops in Japan, the Philippines and Malaysia, has garnered a lot of attention, as it comes amid strained ties between Seoul and Tokyo over historical differences.
