    While President Donald Trump's visit across Asia is underway, the United States testy relationship with North Korea has become a central issue to discuss for South Korean officials, NBC News reported. 

    South Korea's foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha told NBC News before President Donald Trump's visit that war, "on the Korean Peninsula must not happen." 

    Trump is expected to arrive in Seoul — where the subject of how to tackle North Korea's totalitarian dictator is expected to be at the top of the agenda.

    Kang cautioned against "military options," NBC News reported.
