South Korean foreign minister to visit China to arrange presidential trip

South Korean foreign minister to visit China to arrange presidential trip”

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha from the Republic of Korea (ROK) will visit China from November 21 to 23, and both sides will exchange views on issues of common concern, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a regular news briefing on Monday.

Last month, South Korea and China agreed to normalize bilateral ties strained by a prolonged feud over the deployment of a United States anti-missile system called THAAD in South Korea. "We are anticipating in-depth discussions on the Korean Peninsula situation [during Kang and Wang's talks], including plans for the two sides to cooperate on a peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue", the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

On Friday, the Chinese Defense Ministry sad that both China and Russian Federation are against the deployment of the US Terminal High Altitutde Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea, which was said to be deployed to counter North Korean missiles.

South Korea and the United States say, however, that it is exclusively created to shoot down missiles from North Korea.

China wrapped up its weeklong 19th party congress last month, in which Xi cemented his power as he entered his second five-year term.

In a meeting in Vietnam on November 11, held shortly after the two countries shelved the dispute on the missile system, Moon and Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to cooperate in putting bilateral ties on a normal track "in all fields" while agreeing on Moon's visit to China in December.
