South Korean President Moon to visit China December 13-16 - Xinhua

Text size Aa Aa
BEIJING (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in will visit China from Dec. 13-16, China's official Xinhua news agency said on Wednesday, citing Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang. Xinhua did not give further details but the visit will come at a time of heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula. The two countries are seeking to mend ties frayed by a year-long spat over the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea. The anti-missile system was deployed amid growing concern over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes. (Reporting by Michael Martina; Editing by Paul Tait)
