S.Korean President's approval rating rebounds

A South Korean Defense Ministry official, who spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity, said that the drone was found in a South Korean Border town and that it taken 10 photos of a U.S. THAAD missile defense site located in Seongju.

Seoul says a suspected North Korean drone found near the Korean border last week was found to have taken photos of a U.S. missile defense shield in the South. Seoul's Defense Ministry said on Tuesday investigators discovered hundreds of photos from the drone's Sony-made in-built camera. It says the rest are mostly photos of residential areas, farming fields and other less-sensitive areas in the South.

The 2030 World Cup or the edition previous to that doesn't have a host yet but South Korea is already talking about a bid that could include its neighbor, North Korea.

According to the president's spokesperson Park Su-hyun, Moon said: "If the neighbouring countries in north-east 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 north-east Asia". Several suspected drones were found on a South Korean island near the border in 2014, which were equipped with Japanese-made cameras that photographed South Korea's presidential Blue House, along with other areas.

Moon is a liberal president and wants an open dialogue with his neighbors, but North Korea have given little sign of encouragement towards the new wind that is blowing in Seoul.

The nominee for South Korea's unification minister on Tuesday raised the need to resume operations at a joint industrial complex which has been suspended since North Korea's nuclear and missile tests in 2016.

He said they had "high suspicions" that the drone was from North Korea as it was similar to previous drones sent across the border by Pyongyang.

The US and South Korea agreed to deploy THAAD past year, in response to Pyongyang's development of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.

Staying true to his reputation as a man of the people, the president waved to onlookers and chatted with South Korean and USA soldiers before going into the White House, as the USFK headquarters is known. North Korea called the system a provocation aimed at bolstering US military hegemony in the region.

The drone, mounted with a camera, was found last week in a forest near the border with North Korea.
