S. Korean president says visit to China sets foundation for full-scale cooperation

Xinhua,December 18, 2017 Adjust font size:

SEOUL, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Monday that his state visit to China last week had set a foundation for a full-scale cooperation and relations between the two countries.

Moon told a meeting with his senior secretaries that his four-day visit to China was very fruitful as it set a foundation for the full-scale cooperation and normalized ties between South Korea and China in all areas including politics and security as well as economy.

Moon said his China tour last week had a great meaning as it completed South Korea's urgent assignment of diplomacy before the end of this year.

Through this visit, Moon said, South Korea and China established a firm, mature strategic cooperative partnership that will not be wavered by external factors.

He asked politicians both in the ruling and opposition parties as well as the media and the general public to support the government's position.

President Moon traveled to China from Wednesday to Saturday, making his first visit to the neighboring country since he took office in May. Enditem
