Blue House: South Korea to hold summit with China on Saturday

Blue House: South Korea to hold summit with China on Saturday

Even if North Korea were on board, it would be "realistically difficult" to destroy the country's nuclear capabilities because they're so developed, according to South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

On October 31, the two countries agreed to normalise relations, and Seoul said last week it was not considering any additional deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system.

The agreement was disclosed as Moon and Chinese President Xi Jinping met Saturday on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam.

The South Korean president expressed hope his talks with Li will further speed up the normalization of their ties.

China and South Korea have agreed to restore bilateral relations to a "normal development path swiftly", the foreign ministry in Seoul said in a statement in October.

After months of Chinese protest and discussions, the countries' foreign ministries issued a joint statement on October 31, saying the countries will put their relationship back on the right track.




The annual forum involves the leaders of all 10 ASEAN countries, as well as those of South Korea, China and Japan.

The South Korean president is set to return home Wednesday.

An armstice signed in the '50s technically put an end to hostilities between the two countries, but no peace treaty was signed.

Journalists were only allowed to cover the two leaders' opening remarks. But his proposal that they pay mutual visits next year - the 40th anniversary of a friendship treaty between them - was met only with references to the importance of high-level exchanges, he told reporters.

It's for this reason that the global community must pressure North Korea into talks as soon as possible, including through use of sanctions, Moon said Tuesday, per Reuters.

In his bilateral meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit, Moon noted that "Korean wave is popular in the Philippines", with 1.5 million Korean tourists visiting the Philippines annually.
