Trump to host new South Korean president at White House

North Korea will build a nuclear missile that can hit the U.S. mainland within a short period - for that reason the USA considers them the top threat to security.

A South Korean military source has said that a suspected drone of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), which was found last week near the east inter-Korean border, spied on the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) deployment site in southeast South Korea.

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

The drone had a Sony camera on it with hundreds of pictures, according to South Korean defense officials. The drone had apparently crashed close to the THAAD site.

Moon stressed the importance of cooperation with Japan in efforts to denuclearise North Korea, which has been ramping up weapons tests since past year in defiance of global sanctions. While the system has soured relations between Seoul and Beijing, some observers assert that South Korea's national security is in jeopardy as North Korea continues to advance its missile program at an unprecedented pace.

It's never a boring moment when your neighbor is North Korea.

The South's new President Moon Jae-In first proposed the ambitious idea to Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Gianni Infantino in a meeting yesterday, although Korean officials acknowledge China is likely to be lukewarm.

Murray and Wawrinka sweep into French Open last 16
As the French Open enters its seventh day, the tantalising contests and tricky ones for the big player will come thick and fast. Third-seeded Simona Halep eased into the fourth round of the French Open with a 6-0, 7-5 win against Daria Kasatkina.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was found by a local resident on a mountain in South Korea's Gangwon Province last Friday, Yonhap News Agency reported, citing officials.

The White House announced on Tuesday that U.S. President Donald Trump will host South Korean President Moon Jae-in late this month for talks on the Korean Peninsula's nuclear issue.

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. North Korea called the system a provocation aimed at bolstering USA military hegemony in the region.

North Korea is not the only country strongly opposed to the deployment of a USA anti-missile system in South Korea.

Mr Cho also oversaw South Korea's economic cooperation projects with the North, including a jointly-run industrial complex in Kaesong, just north of the border. In this context, the North Korean regime appears to have chose to test the South Korean government on how far it go in improving inter-Korean relations.

The globally isolated state does not have diplomatic relations with Japan or South Korea.
