Trump also plans to discuss trade during his trip and will "emphasize the importance of fair and reciprocal economic ties with America's trade partners".

The rhetoric has escalated as Trump has vowed to "totally destroy" North Korea if forced to defend the United States or its allies and has mocked its leader, Kim Jong Un, as "Little Rocket Man".

The month of September saw intensified North Korean threats aimed at South Korea and the USA and also several high profile nuclear and ballistic missile tests.

With China, enforcing existing measures against Pyongyang in compliance with United Nations sanctions will likely be an important topic, Glaser said.

Now in Australia, Dr Roberts said that Kim might target Australia in a bid to separate USA allies from the US. Kim, in turn, has called Trump a "mentally deranged US".

On Saturday, the United States flew its Air Force B-1B Lancer strategic bombers over worldwide airspace over waters east of North Korea, the farthest north of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) it has flown this century, according to the Pentagon.

Kim will then attend the annual gala dinner hosted by the Korea Society, which will be attended by former USA president George W. Bush and Victor Cha, who has been tapped as the next US ambassador to Seoul, the ministry noted.
