Deputy Secretary of State William Burns will depart Washington, DC on January 19 for a trip to the Republic of Korea, China, and Japan.

In Seoul, he will meet with senior government officials to discuss a broad range of issues that reflect the breadth and depth of our bilateral alliance. The visit will provide an opportunity to follow up on last month’s U.S.-R.O.K. Strategic Dialogue and to continue to coordinate closely on our shared goal of the denuclearization of North Korea.

The Deputy Secretary will then travel to Beijing for meetings with senior Chinese officials on a range of bilateral, regional, and global issues.

The Deputy Secretary will conclude his travel in Tokyo, where he will meet with senior Japanese officials to discuss regional economic and security issues and joint U.S.-Japanese cooperation on matters of global concern.
