Trump adviser Bolton cancels trip to South Korea to focus on Venezuela

Sat, Feb. 23, 2019
WASHINGTON, Feb 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's national security adviser John Bolton has canceled plans to travel to South Korea ahead of next week's summit in Hanoi aimed at addressing North Korea's nuclear program, Bolton's spokesman Garrett Marquis said on Friday.

Bolton decided to stay in Washington to focus on events unfolding in Venezuela, where the military faces a pivotal decision on whether to allow in convoys of humanitarian aid, Marquis said.

Bolton is still expected to attend the summit itself, he said.
