Hyde cancels visit to Seoul
US House International Relations Committee Chairman Henry Hyde has canceled his upcoming trip to Seoul, where he had been scheduled to meet with Korean President Kim Dae-jung. Due to increasing anti-American demonstrations across the nation, it has become an inappropriate time for such a visit, according to an official from the US Embassy to Korea. However, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and Senator Daniel Inouye both plan to go forward with their respective visits to Korea later this month.
