U.S. President Donald Trump attempted to make a surprise visit to the heavily fortified border with North Korea but failed due to bad weather, a Cheong Wa Dae official said Wednesday.
President Moon Jae-in was waiting for him at a guard post in the demilitarized zone.
Heavy fog prevented Trump's helicopter from landing, forcing him to return to a U.S. military base in Yongsan, Seoul.
The trip was proposed by Moon on Tuesday, despite Trump's earlier announcement that he would not go to the border because it has become a cliché.
