South Korea's Moon first suggested Trump visit DMZ - Blue House official

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in had initially suggested on Tuesday that U.S. President Donald Trump make a visit to the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea, a Blue House official told reporters on Wednesday.

Trump had told Moon he had been considering such a trip, and Moon said he would accompany Trump should the U.S. president decide to visit the DMZ, the official said.

The U.S. president aborted a surprise visit to the DMZ on Wednesday morning due to fog after two attempts.
