South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will visit to China from November 21 to November 23, Chinese foreign ministry confirmed on November 20.
South Korea's foreign ministry pointed out that the minister Kang will discuss some projects like president Moon Jae-in’s future visit to China and the Korean nuclear issue with the Chinese government.
“South Korea is the neighbor of China, and the good relationship between China and South Korea is not only in line with historical trends but also the common aspirations of both people,” foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang told a daily news briefing on Monday.
The bilateral ties between the two countries are thawing after a slump due to the US anti-missile system THAAD’s deployment in South Korea.
“We hope the two sides will comply with the important consensus reached between the two leaders on improving China-South Korea relations,” Lu said.
“We will be glad to see that good China-South Korea relations truly beneficial to the two countries and the people, and promote regional peace and stability and prosperity.”
