Trump will travel to five countries-Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines-November 3 to 14.
An Asian diplomat welcomed Mr Trump's decision to visit Manila "because that reassures the region that Asia policy is not just about North Korea, it's about Southeast Asia as well".
Trump's Asia visit also will show his "continued commitment to the alliances and partnerships of the U.S. in the region... and emphasize the importance of fair and reciprocal economic ties with America's trade partners", the White House said.
The Trump administration's economic policy in Asia has not been articulated since Trump in January withdrew the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free-trade agreement that aimed to integrate 12 Asia-Pacific economies. Among other things, he will also emphasise the importance of fair and reciprocal economic ties with US' trade partners.
As part of efforts to reach out to key opinion leaders, Kim will meet with the former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in NY on Thursday to discuss bilateral trade and diplomatic issues, Seoul's commerce ministry said. In one of his first acts as president, he abandoned the Trans-Pacific Partnership that President Barack Obama had negotiated to create a 12-nation free-trade zone; three of the nations he will visit were part of that pact: Vietnam, South Korea and Japan.
Glaser said the USA could discuss with Japan and South Korea additional steps for the allies' trilateral defence cooperation against North Korea's nuclear weapon and missile threat.
US President Donald Trump is set to visit Asia in November for the first time since becoming president.
A war against North Korea "cannot happen" even if "the Korea-U.S. alliance breaks down", said Moon Chung-in, presidential special adviser on foreign affairs and national security, speaking at a panel on how to resolve the Korean Peninsula crisis hosted by the East Asian Future Foundation in Seoul Wednesday. Pointing to the sixth nuclear test by North Korea, International Atomic Energy Agency director Yukiya Amano expressed fear on the country making "very rapid progress".
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". North Korea had also accused Trump of declaring war against the country.
Trump's visit to China is in response to President Xi Jinping's United States visit in April this year. He hosted the Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a- Lago residence in the early part of his presidency and met the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Trump Towers in NY as the president-elect.
Moon agreed, and added, "It is not realistic to say we will not have dialogue with North Korea until it denuclearizes when it already possesses a great amount of nuclear capability".
On Friday, Japan's defence minister Itsunori Onodera urged caution as further provocation by North Korea is anticipated on October 10, according to a Reuters report.
