U.S. President Donald Trump may visit Korea during his Asia tour in November as he attends regional summits.

"Washington and Seoul discussed Trump making a stop in Korea when he visits China in November," a Cheong Wa Dae official said Wednesday.

Trump will attend the ASEAN summit on Nov. 10-11 and the APEC summit on Nov. 11-12, both in Vietnam, as well as the East Asia Summit in the Philippines on Nov. 13-14.

China and the U.S. on Tuesday agreed to hold a summit within the year in China, which would fit into the extended schedule.

Meanwhile, Seoul, Washington and Tokyo are also discussing a trilateral summit in New York on Sept. 21 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. Moon, Trump, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe also sat down together on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg in July.
