U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit South Korea in early October, a diplomatic source said Wednesday.
Pompeo will visit right after Chuseok or Korean Thanksgiving and meet with his South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung-wha and President Moon Jae-in.
He then flies to Japan to meet with new Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.
Pompeo recently said that there are still lots of efforts being made to resume dialogue with North Korea. If that is successful it could help President Donald Trump's faltering approval ratings ahead of the U.S. presidential election.
