Moon calls off Mexico visit this month after Chile’s APEC cancellation

SEOUL-- South Korean President Moon Jae-in has canceled a two-day trip to Mexico this month, Cheong Wa Dae announced Friday, as Chile has pulled out of hosting an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.

Moon was scheduled to visit Mexico from Nov. 13-14 for talks with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on his way to Santiago for the annual APEC session.

His Mexico visit has been canceled "unavoidably" due to the Chilean government's withdrawal from hosting the APEC meeting, Cheong Wa Dae spokesperson, Ko Min-jung, said.

"The change of schedule has been made in consultations with the Mexican government, and the Mexican side has expressed its understanding," she added.
