Nancy Pelosi is planning a visit to the demilitarized zone on the border with North Korea as part of her trip to South Korea. Pelosi wants to travel to Panmunjeom, where the 1953 treaty ending the Korean War was signed, reports the Yonhap newspaper.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to tour the demilitarized zone, also known as the Common Security Zone, on the border with North Korea during her visit to South Korea, the newspaper reports Associated Press (AP) citing a South Korean official.

The area is controlled jointly by the US-led UN command and North Korea.

Pelosi would be the first senior US official to visit the area after former US President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in 2019.

According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap will Pelosi to the village of Panmunjeomwhere the armistice that ended the Korean War was signed in 1953. During her visit to South Korea, Pelosi will also hold talks with Kim Jin Pyo, Speaker of the South Korean Republic’s National Assembly, and other senior members of parliament to discuss regional security, economic cooperation and climate issues.

Pelosi arrived in South Korea on August 3 after the much-discussed visit to Taiwan in politics and the media. When announcing her trip to Asia, she did not mention Taiwan as a travel destination. Upon arriving on the island, Pelosi said the visit was intended to support a “vibrant and vibrant” democracy and reaffirm US intentions to support Taiwan.

Beijing had repeatedly warned Washington ahead of the visit that Pelosi’s trip would damage China-US relations. After Pelosi’s arrival in Taiwan, China accused the US of provocation. The country’s State Council said Taiwan has colluded with outside forces and undermined the peaceful development of relations with mainland China.

After Pelosi’s plane landed in Taipei, Chinese troops began target practice in the waters off Taiwan. The Republic of Taiwan then put its troops on increased combat readiness. The White House assured that Washington is not trying to create a crisis situation around the island. Still, the US administration acknowledged that Beijing could respond to US actions, although China has no reason for aggressive action or military activity in the Taiwan Strait.
