BBC news with Sue Montgomery.

Voting has ended in the American state of Virginia in what's being seen as the country's most significant poll since Donald Trump came to power. The Republican candidate for governor Ed Gillespie has run a combative Trump style campaign, tough on immigration and crime without mentioning the president himself. Polls to say the result is too close to comb. Here's Katty Kay.

This is the first big election since Donald Trump surprised everybody and won the White House. I think you know really it's a test for Democrats. How do they win in the age of Trump? How do they convert all of that anger that's out there on the Democratic Left. Can they translate that into actual votes and winning? And I think that's why Virginia has become so important because it's really their first big test of that. Can they win? They got the anger. They got the fire in their belly. Can they actually now win important races like this one?

President Trump is due to address South Korea's National Assembly shortly. His speech is expected to focus on his North Korea policy. Earlier Mr. Trump urged Pyongyang to come to the negotiating table to discuss giving up its nuclear and missile program. Robin Brant told this assessment was what message Koreans will be hoping for.

What they want to hear the U.S. is here for South Korea. Also there is a key moment to send a message to the North, not just to Kim Jong-un but to the people of North Korea. Donald Trump has referred to them as great people, living under a repressive regime. I think there are many who want to see far less than the talk of "destroying" North Korea. And more broadening out the message appealing to people in the North, trying to bring about some kind of regime change. There are certainly de-escalation in the North, but in a much more gradual concerted way.
