Tensions between the two countries have been high since last year
South Korea and China have agreed to normalise all forms of cooperation and exchanges "expeditiously" following a year-long standoff over the deployment of a US anti-missile system in South Korea, the South's foreign ministry said in a statement.
The statement said: "Both sides shared the view that the strengthening of exchange and cooperation between Korea and China serves their common interests and agreed to expeditiously bring exchange and cooperation in all areas back on a normal development track.”
South Korea's President Moon Jae-in will hold a summit meeting with China's President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of an upcoming summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries in Vietnam between November 10-11, a Blue House official said in a separate briefing on Tuesday.
