President Barack Obama meets with South Korea's president today to discuss the North Korean nuclear standoff.

President Obama and President Lee Myung-bak will likely condemn the North's recent nuclear and missile tests. They're also expected to express their refusal to accept the North as a nuclear weapons power.

Lee says he supports Mr. Obama's appeal for a world without nuclear weapons. But, he tells The Wall Street Journal that the North is trying to become a nuclear power and that's a question the world must deal with "now."

It's a busy round of meetings for Lee today. He'll also be talking with U.S. trade envoy Ron Kirk, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
