U.S. President Donald Trump speaks as he holds a joint press conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, U.S., October 17, 2017. This has led to speculation he will visit the demilitarized zone along that nation's border with North Korea, in order to squint menacingly at the hermit kingdom like Vice President Mike Pence did on a trip there earlier this year.

In a bilateral meeting, Mr Trump will also urge President Xi Jinping to fully implement sanctions by the United Nations Security Council against Pyongyang and to take steps that go beyond that, an official told reporters.

The official went on to say the United States wanted the risky situation with North Korea to be resolved in a peaceful way, adding failure to turn back the North Korean threat would lead to a "much darker era". Often wearing bomber-style jackets and flanked by military officers, presidents have used binoculars to peer at the barren strip of land at the 38th parallel and delivered forceful remarks denouncing the threat posed by the rogue regime.

A Congressional aide who has spoken to Yun said that the diplomat is looking to restart an attempt by dispatching Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Asia. A number of the United States' Asian allies have nervously watched the drama unfold and called for a peaceful resolution. Senator Bob Corker said that President Trump has been undercutting diplomatic efforts.

"There is no quick and easy solution", Lee said.

George H.W. Bush is the only president not to visit the DMZ since Reagan toured the border zone in 1983, though he did make his own trip while serving as vice president.

Trump will depart on November 3 and will visit with USA allies in Japan and South Korea who are anxious about escalating tensions in the region. North Korea has not engaged in any tension-raising activities in the 39 days since its September 15 intermediate-range ballistic missile launch, its longest such break since its missile test launch at the time of a February 2017 summit between Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

In Japan, his first stop in Asia, Trump is slated to meet with the families of Japanese citizens abducted by the North Korean regime. China has officially supported faithful implementation of UN Security Council resolutions sanctioning the North but opposed independent sanctions.

A White House official said Mr Trump will also try to pressure Mr Xi next month to ease what Washington views as unfair trade practices. "But if China helps us, I feel a lot differently toward trade, a lot differently toward trade". Some observers suggested that were Trump to visit the DMZ, it could escalate tensions, as well as endanger the president. The White House said Trump could raise concerns with the program.
