"We have been fully complying with United Nation's resolution 2270, 2321 and we closed the Kaesong Industrial complex, we closed Mt. Kumgang tourism project". In his response, Perry said the idea was "worth considering" from Washington's perspective, but that "South Korea might not accept it" - suggesting public opinion in South Korea might be a bigger issue than the US. He tried to distance himself from the official decision-making process of the administration in Seoul.

The adviser told correspondents in Washington last Friday that Seoul could scale down joint military exercises with the USA if North Korea halts its nuclear weapons and missile program, questioned the need to dispatch American super-carriers and strategic bombers, and downplayed the importance of the THAAD anti-missile battery being stationed here.

"The President has spoken very clearly about how he and the first lady and our country feels about the loss of this American", Spicer said.

Similar arguments were made to the Washington Post in September 2016 by Jane Harman, director of the Woodrow Wilson Center, and James Person, coordinator of the its Center for Korean History and Public Policy, while a fierce debate was taking place over the new United States administration's North Korea policy.

While the ICBM threat is of great concern to the U.S., South Korea and Japan are anxious about the very real threat already posed by North Korea's large stockpile or reliable shorter-range missiles.

The U.S. maintains about 28,500 servicemembers in South Korea and 50,000 in Japan.

The official told reporters Moon Chung-in "met with Chung before heading to the USA and discussed many of his ideas".

He said Seoul and Washington could make an offer of those gestures to Pyongyang in return for denuclearization, adding that a give-and-take is the essence of a negotiation.

South Korea to soon begin the mass-production of new missile interceptor code-named M-SAM to fight its neighbour North Korea.

Moon also said Moon-Trump summit next week will be an opportunity for the two leaders to ease tensions between Seoul and Washington.

In an obvious riposte to the special adviser's remarks, the USA military publicized the dispatching of strategic bombers to South Korea on Tuesday.

A South Korean air force official said earlier that the bombers would fly over the peninsula for a few hours along with two South Korean F-15K fighter jets.

The conservative Liberty Korea Party said the "brutality of the irrational Kim Jung Un regime" would become known throughout the world and "strongly condemned" it, while also criticizing the government for recent statements made by a government adviser over joint U.S. -ROK military drills.

The Yonhap news agency also quoted an unnamed source as saying the bombers would carry out a mock bombing practice at a range in the eastern province of Gangwon, but that could not be confirmed.
