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.

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".
