S. Korea suggests 2030 World Cup bid to include N. Korea

However, after presenting the trophy to the victors, FIFA President Gianni Infantino is said to have travelled to visit recently-elected President Moon Jae-in at Offices of the President of Korea Republic in Seoul, according to a report from the Guardian.

"If neighbouring north-east Asian countries, including South and North Korea, can host the World Cup, I think that would contribute to peace between South and North Korea and in the Northeast Asian region", he said.

The drone was found at a South Korean border town last Friday and South Korean investigators have since discovered hundreds of photos from its Sony-made in-built camera, a Defense Ministry official said, requesting anonymity because of department rules.

The Confederations Cup, FIFA's traditional curtain-raiser for the World Cup host nation, is set to take place in Russian Federation later this month.

The organizers of the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, hope North Korea will take part in the Winter Games. According to officials, Tuesdays drone was similar to those found back then, such as their "low technology features".

Seoul agreed previous year to deploy the missile interceptor system to guard against threats from nuclear-armed North Korea, despite angry opposition from China - which believes THAAD could undermine its own military capabilities. Analysts have predicted that at its current pace, North Korea will test another 13 to 14 missiles by the end of the year at a rate of one test every two weeks.

North Korea is believed to possess up to 300 unmanned aerial vehicles, capable of performing both reconnaissance and combat operations.

The Korean War which broke out in 1950 was paused by a truce in 1953 but has never ended. North Korea charges that these defectors were abducted while South Korea says they voluntarily fled.

North Korean drones are known to have flown over South Korea several times.

"We want to start discussions with China and Japan on this idea", a spokesman for the Korea Football Association (KFA) said.

"We will come up with measures to deal with North Korean drones", a South Korean official said.

The THAAD deployment, however, has angered China because the system's long-range AN/TPY-2 radar has the ability to peer into Chinese territory.
