North Korea threat overshadows Trump's Seoul visit

US President Donald Trump is meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and will visit Camp Humphreys, a vast military base 50km south of Seoul that is rising as a new hub for the 28,500 US forces.

A critical undercurrent during the visit will be the ongoing shift in Washington's strategic focus, driven by North Korea's expanding nuclear capabilities.

With the US increasingly in North Korea's crosshairs, Washington is focusing more on its own defence on the peninsula.
