Trump invites new S. Korean president to US

South Korean leader Moon discuss North Korea with China's Xi Blue House Pyongyang unveils satellite photos of Thaad in S.Korea

The Trump administration has also been dismayed by Moon's questioning of deployment of a US missile defense system in South Korea and expects some friction in ties, although USA officials say the new president may moderate his stances in office and the effect on the alliance will be limited. The two leaders also agreed to strengthen their alliance, the White House said.

South Korean internet users on Thursday shared photos of Moon waving off a presidential employee and taking off his own jacket at a luncheon.

Moon told Abe to "look straight at history" and not make the past "a barrier", though he raised South Korea's dissatisfaction with a 2015 agreement meant to put to rest a dispute over Japanese compensation for South Korean women forced to work in Japanese brothels before and during World War Two, Korea's presidential office said.

In a speech after he took the oath of office on Wednesday, Moon said he plans to eventually move out of the Blue House, which was seen as part of an attempt to be a more accessible leader. Moon advocates a less confrontational policy.

Moon assumed presidential duties early in the morning after the National Election Commission finished counting Tuesday's votes and declared him victor of the special election necessitated by the ousting of conservative Park Geun-hye, whose downfall and jailing on corruption charges is one of the most turbulent stretches in the nation's recent political history. "I will go to Beijing and Tokyo and, if the conditions are right, to Pyongyang also".

China's Foreign Ministry said Beijing hoped South Korea "pays attention to China's security concerns" and deals "appropriately" with the THAAD issue.

"The talk about a South-North summit is a little premature, but regardless of that, there's a need for a summit meeting", Suh said.

Moon first spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping and later to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with how to respond to North Korea's rapidly developing nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions, dominating talks.

"I take this office empty-handed, and I will leave the office empty-handed", Moon said. Moon accepted Trump's invitation to visit at an "early date". To his rivals, Moon said, "We are partners who must lead a new Republic of Korea". China contends the system's radar ranges into its territory and threatens its security. Lee Sun-jin, chairman of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, and he visited a national cemetery in Seoul where he wrote in a visitor book: "A country worth being proud of; a strong and reliable president!"

Moon's pick for National Intelligence Service chief is Suh Hoon, a longtime intelligence official Moon said would be the right man to push reforms at NIS, which has always been accused of meddling in domestic politics.

Moon has said the decision was made hastily and his government should have the final say, but analysts say it would be hard to remove THAAD now it has been deployed. The American participants typically report their observations to the USA administration.
