However, U.S. policy makers and senior military officers remain most concerned with the prospect of North Korea acquiring intercontinental-range ballistic missile capabilities.

"Both South Korea and Japan should look at this issue directly and understanding is needed that it will take more time (to resolve it)", Moon told Nikai, the South's presidential office said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In first proposed a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup with China, Japan and North Korea to Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Gianni Infantino in a meeting yesterday.

The South Korean military is trying to figure out where in the North the drone was flown from.

The THAAD system, controlled by the U.S., was deployed to the Korean peninsula back in March and is created to shoot down any North Korean missiles that might pose a threat to South Korea, the United States, or other allies in the region. North Korea sent similar drones to South Korea in 2014, one of which was found to have taken pictures of Cheong Wa Dae.

The camera on board the drone is a Sony DSLT with 64 GB of memory, according to the news site NK News.

Mr Trump has deployed naval ships to South Korea in an effort to prevent North Korea from carrying out further weapons tests.

The launch followed the departure of the US aircraft carriers USS Carl Vinson and USS Ronald Reagan from the region after conducting joint exercises with allies South Korea and Japan.

"South Korean military personnel located the defector soldier's whereabouts and is investigating the motive and progress of the defection", the JCS said in a statement. South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, has suggested that North Korea could be part of the candidacy for the sporting event.

"Pyongyang responded to a January tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump, in which he stated that a North Korean strike on the U.S".

In a written testimony to Congress on Monday, Mattis warned that North Korea is increasing the pace and scope of its nuclear weapons program, amid escalating tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.

In late May, Pyongyang launched a short-range ballistic missile which landed in the Sea of Japan (also known as the East Sea), about 300km off the Japanese coast.

"If the South Korean authorities have no will to recognize and respect the North and give up confrontation and hostility to the compatriots, we have no idea to force them to do so", said the committee.
