Gov. Mark Dayton, winding up a trade mission to Japan and Korea, hosted a wreath-laying ceremony at the Korean War Memorial on Friday.

Dayton is leading a delegation of 24 Minnesota leaders on his first trade mission as governor. He left Minnesota Sept. 23 and visited business and government leaders in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, Japan, before flying to Seoul, Korea on Tuesday.

His wreath-laying ceremony was in honor of Minnesota veterans. His Friday schedule also calls for him to host a lunch with Minnesota troops currently stationed in Korea and to visit the Demilitarized Zone separating South and North Korea.

Dayton is to return to Minnesota on Saturday.
