Top U.S. foreign policy and defense officials plan to travel to South Korea later this month, an informed government source told NK News on Friday.

Both U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are expected to make their first-ever visit to Seoul since they were formally appointed to their positions earlier this year. Though the exact dates and agenda items of their trip have not yet been confirmed, both officials recently put out statements on North Korea.
