Q&A Bennett & Beattie / Korea Tensions / U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hosts his South Korean counterpart (Yun Byung-se) at the State Department today (Tuesday) amid the heightened tensions with North Korea. The meeting precedes Mr. Kerry's trip to Northeast Asia next week, including stops in Japan, South Korea and China. The Washington talks between the South Korean and American officials come as a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer took up station off the Korean peninsula, and the U.S./South Korean military command undergoes changes. Bruce Bennett, Asia analyst for RAND Corporation, tells VOA's Victor Beattie that's likely to be high on the South Korean Foreign Minister's agenda.
