"If East Asian countries, including the two Koreas, host the World Cup, I think this will help build up peace on the Korean peninsula as well as in the region", he said.

Moon said soccer is South Koreans' most favorite sport and that he personally believes it is one of the most equal and democratic sports.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday met with Princess Astrid of Belgium who is visiting Seoul as a special envoy of King Philippe.

The South Korean Defense Ministry on Tuesday released this photo, taken Friday, of a suspected North Korean drone.

A year earlier a South Korean fisherman found the wreckage of a North Korean drone in his net near a frontline island south of the rivals' disputed Yellow Sea border. In 2014, the South Korean Defense Ministry announced that it had recovered four crashed North Korean drones between October 2013 and September of that year.

Seoul insiders and observers are suggesting that liberal South Korean President Moon Jae-In name his North Korea policy "Moonshine" in the spirit of former liberal leader Kim Dae-Jung's "Sunshine" policy.

The Korean War which broke out in 1950 was paused by a truce in 1953 but has never ended.

Mattis called North Korea the "most urgent and unsafe threat" to peace and security, and said its continued pursuit of nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them has increased in pace and scope. North Korea called the system a provocation that it says is aimed at bolstering USA military hegemony in the region.

North Korea has about 300 unmanned aerial vehicles of different types including one designed for reconnaissance as well as combat drones, the United Nations said in a report previous year.

"If North Korea does it, Kim Jong Un knows well that China will prepare sanctions such as blocking the oil pipeline (between the two countries, )" Ahn said. China also opposes the deployment because it worries that THAAD's powerful radar system can peer into its own territory.

Pyongyang operates over 300 drones for military purposes and if the origin of the new device is confirmed, it would be a demonstration of North's progress in espionage.
