S. Korea accuses North of spying on United States missile system

S. Korea accuses North of spying on United States missile system

During the talks, the Korean President is reported to have made something of an unexpected proposition; he suggested to the FIFA President the real possibility of both the Korea Republic (also known as South Korea) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (known as North Korea) co-hosting the competition.

Amid suggestions that the Far East could be awarded the tournament in 2030, Mr Moon suggested the World Cup could be shared with countries in the Northeast Asian region - including North Korea.

A possible North Korean drone took numerous photos of a new US missile defense site located in South Korea before crashing near the demilitarized zone between the two countries, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Even South Korean-Japanese relations aren't particularly positive, amid an ongoing dispute between Seoul and Tokyo over so-called "comfort women" held by the Japanese imperial army during World War II.

A suspected North Korean drone spied on USA missile defense systems in South Korea and nearly got away with it.

On that chip were at least 10 pictures of the area where the United States deployed a controversial Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system.

North Korea's state-run Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station aired two satellite images of the THAAD deployment site and the ballistic missile defense batteries in May.

Nearly all of the hermit state's national team play for clubs in North Korea, given the difficulties of escaping the communist kingdom. It is unclear if any of these devices will be deployed to South Korea.

Footballing culture is strong in the two Koreas.

KFA president Chung Mong-Gyu told reporters that the North - which does not have formal diplomatic ties with Japan or South Korea - would likely be keen to host if the other countries all agreed to participate.

However, not all sporting overtures have been successful.

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

Global diplomacy aside, northeast Asia is well situated for the World Cup.

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

The JCS added that the South Korean soldiers first found the North Korean soldier and guided him to the general outpost (GOP) after checking his intention to defect and securing him in custody.
