Harris to visit Korea's demilitarized zone

United States Vice President Kamala Harris will enter the areas demilitarized under several inter-Korean agreements during her South Korea trip this week, CNN reported on Tuesday, citing a White House official.

Harris will visit the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in a trip where she plans to "reaffirm that the US commitment to the ROK's defense is ironclad," according to the official.

During a meeting with Harris in Tokyo, South Korean Prime Minister Han Duck-soo said the move will be a "very symbolic demonstration" of Washington's efforts to maintain peace and security on the Korean peninsula, Yonhap reported, confirming the news.
