South Korean president lays wreath at Arlington National Cemetery

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: South Korea's newly-elected President Park Geun-hye is in the United States this week for a summit meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday (May 7). Ahead of that meeting, she visited Arlington National Cemetery on Monday (May 6) and laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown. Park and Obama are expected to discuss a strategy to deal with recent North Korean provocations, including a third nuclear test, the sentencing of an American to 15 years of hard labor and the closing of an industrial park run jointly with South Korea. Park, who was elected in December as the first female president of South Korea, will also address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, to discuss the U.S.-South Korean relationship at a time when tensions are rising in the region.
