Suspected NKorea drone photographed USA missile-defense site

The leaders will seek to "advance cooperation on economic and global issues" and "will also coordinate on North Korea-related issues, including countering the growing North Korean nuclear and missile threats", it added.

A suspected North Korean drone had photographed a US missile defense shield in South Korea before it crashed near the border where it was found last week, the Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

One sign of disorientation in Moon's North Korea policy came in his efforts to appease the Pyongyang government through civilian aid, which was largely suppressed during the previous nine years of two conservative governments.

The US has engaged in a "cynical ploy" against moderate governments in Seoul in the past to pressure them into accepting USA policy and maintaining an alliance with Washington, it said.

Nikai handed over a letter from Abe calling for heavier pressure and tougher sanctions on North Korea to achieve the complete dismantlement of its nuclear weapons program, and asking for South Korea to implement its side of the sex slavery agreement. South Korean President Moon Jae-in apparently thinks so.

North Korea though has less affiliations with football.

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.

In his visit to South Korea, Liberal Democratic Party Secretary General Toshihiro Nikai met key politicians of the country with the aim of laying the groundwork for the improvement of the bilateral relationship, providing indirect support for the Japanese government.

The World Cup has never been jointly hosted by four countries, although South Korea and Japan co-hosted the competition in 2002.

A suspected North Korean drone had taken photographs of an advanced US anti-missile battery in South Korea before it crashed, while apparently on its way back home, the South Korean military said on Tuesday.

Infantino was quoted as saying he will sound out Chinese President Xi Jinping about Moon's idea when the two meet later this week.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert did not give the details of their discussions, but said the U.S. is aware of the "suspension" of the THAAD deployment and that it would continue to work closely with South Korea.

Speaking at an event attended by a group of South Korean lawmakers on a trip to the southwestern city of Mokpo, Nikai also expressed hope for their countries to "get along well" and not to have relations tangled with "trivial matters".
