He will also attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) moot and East Asian Summit (EAS) of the Association of the South Asian Association (ASEAN) that will be held at Da Nang in Vietnam on 10 November.
Trump’s tour is the longest taken by an American president in more than a quarter century. There are a number of thorny issues of bilateral concerns between the United States and these countries as well as many regional chaotic issues on the top of which is the North Korean mess up of nuclear and missiles built up. The United States needs the support of China to handle the North Korean worries.
