THE brewing confrontation between the United States and North Korea in recent weeks is expected to be addressed when Asean leaders meet for their annual summit here this weekend.

It is understood that North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho wrote to Asean secretary-general Le Luong Minh late last month, calling on the grouping to “make an issue” of the US-South Korea joint military exercises in the Korean Peninsula.
