South Korea

South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), sometimes known as just Korea, is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and lying east to the Asian mainland. The name Korea is derived from Goguryeo which was one of the great powers in East Asia during its time, ruling most of the Korean Peninsula, Manchuria, parts of the Russian Far East and Inner Mongolia, under Gwanggaeto the Great.

    North Korea to allow international inspections for nuclear dismantlement, if U.S. takes reciprocal measures

    SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea agreed to allow international inspectors to observe a "permanent dismantlement" of its key missile facilities, and will take additional steps such as closing its main Yongbyon nuclear complex if the United States takes reciprocal measures, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday.

    N. Korea's Kim to visit Seoul, shut missile site

    North Korea's Kim Jong Un agreed Wednesday to shutter a missile-testing site and visit Seoul, a historic move the US welcomed by saying it was ready for immediate talks aimed at denuclearising North Korea by January 2021. Kim's ground-breaking announcement came at a summit with the South's President Moon Jae-in in Pyongyang, where the two signed a document to strengthen ties between the two halves of the divided peninsula. Progress on the key issue of the North's nuclear arsenal was limited but, building on a growing rapprochement, the two leaders agreed to create a facility to hold family reunions at any time, work towards joining up road and rail links, and mount a combined bid for the 2032 Olympics.

    Asian Stocks: 4 Great Funds for a Far East Surge

    We've all heard that diversification is good for a portfolio. Considering that the U.S. stock market is at record highs, and stocks are about as pricey as they get, investors may want to consider spreading around some of their risk. And Asian stocks might be the best place in the world for that right now. If you want to diversify outside the U.S. market, there's a problem: Most major markets don't look any safer than the U.S. Europe has been underperforming for literally years with no real sign of reversing that trend. Latin America has plenty of problems, not the least of which is the implosion of the Argentinian economy. Africa is a hotbed of unstable stock markets and geopolitical unrest. Fortunately, there are some opportunities in Asia - through domestically traded exchange-traded funds (ETFs) - where local markets are either holding firm or turning the corner into bull markets. Here's a look at four funds to buy to get exposure to Asian stocks and defray your risk a bit. SEE ALSO: Emerging-Markets Stocks: 10 Ways to Play the Next Bull Market

    Washington set to replace US military commander in S. Korea

    Washington is set to replace the commander of US forces in South Korea amid a rapid diplomatic thaw on the peninsula, even as denuclearisation of the North stalls. General Robert B. Abrams, commander of the US Army Forces Command, will undergo a confirmation hearing next week to be head of US Forces Korea (USFK), the Senate Armed Services Committee's website showed. If his nomination is approved, he will succeed General Vincent Brooks as commander of USFK, the UN Command and the South Korea-US Combined Forces Korea, who has been in the post since April 2016.
