Korea drone photographed US defense site

Under the deal, the US installed several Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system components to counter the perceived nuclear threat from North Korea.

The drone is believed to be of North Korean origin, as it resembles North Korean drones that have entered South Korea in the past.

South Korea's new president chose to halt deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Air Defense (THAAD) system last week-pending environmental review.

President Donald Trump will host South Korea's new leader Moon Jae-In for talks on containing North Korea's nuclear program, officials said Tuesday, amid fresh Pentagon warnings that the Pyongyang regime is a "clear and present danger to all".

South Korea and the United States agreed previous year to deploy the THAAD unit in response to North Korea's relentless development of its ballistic missiles, and nuclear weapons, in defiance of U.N. sanctions.

However, outside observers are skeptical that the review may be a ploy to reverse South Korean public support for the deployment.

The South Korean army seized the drone and confirmed that the device had taken photos of the Thaad site in Seongju, according to a defence official.

The JCS added that the South Korean soldiers first found the North Korean soldier and guided him to the general outpost (GOP) after checking his intention to defect and securing him in custody.

THAAD's deployment has been a polarizing issue for most of the region. North Korea called the system a provocation aimed at bolstering USA military hegemony in the region.

Drones are a relatively new addition to North Korea's arsenal.

Nikai, the number two executive in his party behind the prime minister, is known for his generally warm ties with South Korea and China.

The pictures were taken using the drone's built-in Sony camera.

After a joint investigation with U.S. experts, Seoul said they were flown from North Korea and had been pre-programmed to fly over South Korean military installations.

"If the neighbouring countries in Northeast Asia, including North and South Korea, can host the World Cup together, it would help to create peace in North and South Korea as well as Northeast Asia", Moon was cited as saying by his spokesman Park Su-hyun.

South Korea warned Japan on Monday to exercise caution when making remarks about bilateral ties, including the issue of Korean "comfort women" forced to work in Japanese military brothels during World War Two.
