Pyongyang also urged Seoul to dismantle the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system and get rid of pro-US forces in the new government.

Why the immediate trigger?

Moon added, "It would not be impossible for South Korea and Japan to build a future-oriented relationship".

The decision to use THAAD was made by former South Korean President Park Geun-hye, who was impeached and later ousted in a corruption scandal.

South Korean troops massacred about 9,000 Vietnamese civilians during the Vietnam War, according to an investigation by historian Ku Su-jeong.

While South Korean President Moon Jae-in, inaugurated last month, has expressed his hope to meet with Abe in the near future, China may not immediately decide whether to accept Japan's offer as it is still gauging the South Korean administration's policy stance toward Beijing and Tokyo, the sources said.

Pyongyang last Friday announced the test launch of a new type of cruise missile capable of striking USA and South Korean warships "at will", according to the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

Tuesday's development suggests the North Koreans may have closely monitored the deployment with drones.

A jointly hosted tournament "could help create peace between the South and North and in the northeast region", Moon said, according to a spokesman. "To this end we must further strengthen the [South Korean]-U.S. alliance and maintain a rock solid combined defense posture". US President Donald Trump has vowed to "solve the problem" of North Korea by putting an end to its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

"I don't know if in South Korea there are even a handful, but they must be eradicated", Nikai was quoted as saying.

A suspected North Korean drone crashed a few miles from the DMZ after being observed taking photos of THAAD installations.

The THAAD debate has become overheated and politicized, generating risks of miscalculation and overreaction.

Before going into the meeting, Shannon told reporters seeking comments on the THAAD issue that he is "sure that we will have a broad agenda".

If not held in July, the summit likely would be delayed until at least after the congress.

South Korean officials recently stumbled upon what is believed to be a North Korean drone that didn't make it back home. A Blue House source clarified that Moon's proposal was only at the idea stage and had not been the subject of detailed discussions with China, Japan, or North Korea.
