North Korea at top of Obama-Lee Myung-bak agenda

President Barack Obama arrived late Wednesday in Osan Air base, near the city of Pyeongtaek in Gyeonggi Province, kicking off a two-day visit to South Korea.

During his stay in Seoul, which is to last less than 24 hours, Obama will meet with his South Korean counterpart Lee Myung-bak for a summit early Thursday in a bid to strengthen bilateral ties and to find ways to break through various regional and global issues.

North Korea's nuclear problem will top the agenda.

Obama will then head home late Thursday after visiting a US military base to meet American servicemen there.
