Trump to host S.Korea's Moon for White House talks

South Korea last hosted the World Cup in 2002 with Japan, which is also believed to be in the running.

A suspected North Korean spy drone flew more than 100 miles into South Korea and snapped photos of the recently deployed us anti-ballistic missile system before circling back and crashing on the southern side of the fortified border that divides the Korean peninsula.

Later on Tuesday, the South's military said a North Korean soldier defected to the South across their heavily mined border, known as the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

After a joint investigation with United States experts, Seoul said they were flown from North Korea and had been pre-programmed to fly over South Korean military installations. Any flare-up in the long-running dispute over "comfort women" could complicate efforts by Seoul, Tokyo and their ally Washington to cope with North Korea, which has been ramping up weapons tests since previous year in defiance of global sanctions.

China and Russian Federation assert that the U.S.is using the North Korean threat as an excuse to expand its ballistic missile defense in the area, crippling the nuclear deterrence capabilities of these two countries.

The discovery of the photos on the drone came as US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said that North Korea's advancing missile and nuclear programmes were the "most urgent" threat to US national security and that its means to deliver them had increased in speed and scope. "My guess is that it has 300 to 400 drones", Mr. Han said, adding that the drones are stored underground to avoid detection by USA and other reconnaissance satellites. China also says the system does nothing to deter North Korea.

Drones are a relatively new addition to North Korea's arsenal.

Infantino said he would discuss the proposal with Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to a statement by South Korea's Presidential Office, the Blue House.

The photos taken by the drone found in 2014 on Baengnyeong Island in the Yellow Sea indicate that it flew only over regions near the western border between the two Koreas. Park said the two summits would focus on strengthening bilateral alliance, addressing fundamental solutions to North Korean problem and ensuring lasting peace in Korean Peninsula as well as enhancing bilateral economic cooperation.
