U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with South Korean President Park Geun-hye on Friday, to discuss ways to defuse tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Kerry arrived in South Korea on Friday on an unusual diplomatic journey, travelling directly into a region bracing for a possible North Korean missile test and risking that his presence alone could spur Pyongyang into another headline-seeking provocation.

Kerry was kicking off four days of talks in East Asia amid speculation that the North's unpredictable regime would launch a mid-range missile designed to reach as far as the US territory of Guam.

The secretary of state also planned to visit China and Japan.
