Trump to Deliver Speech at S. Korean Parliament

U.S. President Donald Trump will deliver a speech at the South Korean National Assembly at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
 
Trump's parliamentary speech will mark the first by a U.S. president in 24 years since former President Bill Clinton delivered one in 1993.
 
Trump will be speaking before more than 500 South Korean lawmakers and Seoul-based foreign diplomats.
 
During the 20-minute speech, Trump is expected to stress the importance of the strong U.S-South Korea alliance and Washington's firm position on North Korea’s nuclear and missile threats.
 
The U.S. president is likely to repeat calls for revising the South Korea-U.S. free trade agreement and ask for cooperation from the South Korean parliament on the matter.
 
Trump may also unveil his general Asia policy during the speech, which is the only legislative speech scheduled during his 12-day visit to five Asian countries.
 
Trump is scheduled to have a brief meeting with Assembly Speaker Chung Sye-kyun and floor leaders of ruling and opposition parties before the speech.
