‘Iowa’ Caucuses Could Be Held in Japan, Mexico, California

Next year’s Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3 could be held in far-flung locations as distant as California — and even abroad, as far away as Japan. That’s due to a new idea, the “satellite caucus meeting,” that Democrats hope to use to expand “access” to the quadrennial political contest, which traditionally kicks off the start of the presidential primary.

South Korea’s Moon at the U.N.: Trump, Kim Jong-un Began ‘New Era of Peace’

South Korean President Moon Jae-in optimistically praised the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday for helping to solve many of the world’s problems and said its “efforts toward peace are coming to fruition,” notably including on the Korean Peninsula. Moon’s assessment of the peace process was extremely positive, culminating in a proposal to transform the DMZ separating the two Koreas into a U.N. World Heritage Site.
