South Korean President Moon Jae-in delivers a speech at the National Assembly in Seoul, South Korea June 12, 2017.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposed today that Northeast Asian countries co-host the 2030 FIFA World Cup to ease tensions in the region.
An aircraft thought to be a North Korean drone discovered in South Korea last week was found to have taken pictures of a U.S. advanced anti-missile system deployed in South Korea, the South's military said Tuesday, confirming the suspicion that the drone was on a spy mission.
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 Pyongyang's advancing weapons programme.
FIFA's Infantino welcomed Moon's suggestion this week, adding that while there could be difficulties in achieving his goal, "it is important to make such an effort based on belief". North Korea did not qualify when South Korea and Japan hosted the 2002 World Cup.
Moon said Japan should look squarely at the comfort women issue and that both countries should understand more time is needed for this issue.
