US President Donald Trump has landed in South Korea, with the North’s nuclear ambitions high on his agenda.
He flew in from Tokyo, after saying on Monday that Japan could shoot down Pyongyang’s missiles with US equipment.
Trade will also be a key focus for Mr. Trump, who wants fresh terms for the US-South Korea free trade agreement.
He will meet President Moon Jae-in, US troops, and local politicians. Mr Trump is currently on a five-nation tour of Asia, his first as president.
Getting ready to leave for South Korea and meetings with President Moon, a fine gentleman. We will figure it all out!

Though the US president will only spend about 24 hours in South Korea, it is perhaps the most symbolic stop in his Asian tour, says the BBC’s Robin Brant in Seoul.
