Korea accuses North of spying on US missile system

Korea accuses North of spying on US missile system

A South Korean Defence Ministry official confirmed to Reuters that the device took at least 10 photographs of the anti-missile system - known as the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD).

Trump and Moon will likely discuss a controversial USA missile defence system that has been installed in South Korea to guard against North Korean missile threats.

South Korea is hoping to ease regional tensions with a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup with North Korea, China and Japan. In 2014, several other suspected North Korean drones were found south of the border and experts said they were crude and low-tech but could be considered as a potential security threat.

The US and South Korean governments under former President Park Geun-hye agreed to install the Thaad anti-missile system in last July as a preventive measure against North Korea's repeated missile tests.

Moon wants to engage North Korea in dialogue and revive stalled exchanges with the reclusive country including economic cooperation projects, saying sanctions alone have failed to rein in North Korea's accelerating development of weapons.

North Korea has threatened to launch nuclear weapons at New York City in response to President Donald Trump's tweets against Pyongyang, the Daily Mail reported on Tuesday. "We also notified it that we're prepared to take independent action if necessary and that we are capable of taking action against North Korea", a senior U.S. government official was quoted as saying.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In, newly elected in May, suggested the idea to FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Monday. During his confirmation hearing in January, Mattis said that Russian Federation was the number one threat facing the United States, but just five months later he has given that label to North Korea. It says the rest are mostly photos of residential areas, farming fields and other less-sensitive areas in the South.

In recent years, North Korea has grown its drone program.

The two Koreas have been divided along the world's most heavily fortified border since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

Gianni Infantino is reported to have welcomed the President's suggestions, and opened the possibility of an extraordinary global event, with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un welcomed as a guest among his worldwide peers at a major tournament.

"The THAAD defensive missile system is critical to protecting South Koreans from Km Jong Un's arsenal", U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce said in a statement last week.

The report said a relatively small number of Chinese companies - 5,233 - traded with North Korea from 2013 to 2016, compared with the 67,163 that exported to South Korea.

The North has staged two atomic tests and dozens of missile tests since the beginning of previous year in its quest to build a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.

Moon has also expressed his intention to enhance South Korea's relations with Japan.
