An Air Force officer opens the door of Air Force One as U.S. President Barack Obama arrives at Joint Base Andrews from New Jersey and New York, in MarylandBy Amy Tennery NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said on Tuesday costs for a new Air Force One - one of the most prominent symbols of the U.S. presidency - were out of control, and urged the government to cancel a contract with Boeing Co for the jet. Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, griped during his unconventional election campaign about the cost of President Barack Obama's use of the presidential aircraft to campaign for his rival, Hillary Clinton. It was not immediately clear what prompted his complaint about Boeing and the presidential plane, but his transition team said that he aimed to send a clear message he intends to save taxpayers' money.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon delivers a speech after being awarded with the Legion of Honour (Legion d'Honneur) by the French president at the Elysee Palace in ParisBy Jack Kim and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - Besides South Korean President Park Geun-hye, the biggest casualty of the country's mushrooming political corruption scandal may be the presidential aspirations of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Although he has not declared his candidacy, Ban was until a month ago the front-runner in opinion polls to win the election scheduled for Dec. 20, 2017, a race he was widely expected to contest from Park's conservative Saenuri Party. An impeachment vote is set for later this week, and Ban's standing in polls has declined, while the Saenuri has become a much less viable platform for a run.

Group chairmen take an oath during a parliamentary probe into a scandal engulfing President Park Geun-Hye at the National Assembly in SeoulSouth Korean President Park Geun-hye, engulfed in an influence peddling scandal, said if she was impeached she would wait for a court to uphold the decision, a party official said on Tuesday, a sign a political crisis could drag on for months. Park's embattled presidency faces a critical juncture, with parliament expected to hold an impeachment vote on Friday. Separately, South Korea's most prominent corporate chiefs told a parliamentary panel they had not sought favors when they made contributions to two foundations at the heart of the scandal, even as one of them acknowledged it was hard to say "no" to the government.
