China's Xi says willing to help end rift with South Korea

Trump has to deal with the unexpected election of a new leader in South Korea, President Moon Jae-un, a respected left-of-centre politician who states he wants to ease the tense relations with North Korea, including the current alarm caused by North Korea's missile tests.

"We're now at a crossroads in our relations", Wang told Lee as he urged the new South Korean administration to make a decision to "remove the obstacles" that stand in the way of healthy ties between the two Asian economic powerhouses.

China has been infuriated by the USA deployment of the THAAD system in South Korea, saying it was a threat to its security and would do nothing to ease tensions with Pyongyang.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday promised to work with the United Nations to completely denuclearize communist North Korea, the presidential office said.

No doubt, considering the threatening nature of North Korea, which is certainly rising day by day, it is more important for the US and South Korea to improve their ties as quick as possible.

As the sides discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula, Xi emphasized his support of the "denuclearization" of the region "through dialogue and coordination" amid the growing tensions with North Korea and the military buildup in the area.

"He also expressed his opinion that he would seriously take into account the outcomes of his summit meetings with his Chinese and USA counterparts in addressing the matter", said spokesman Park.

Media reports suggested that Syrian rebels have voiced concerns over the Syrian army getting "too close" to the US Special Forces' base in At Tanf.

China's top diplomat on Thursday reiterated calls for its dismantling.

Seoul and Washington have argued that the missile system is aimed at North Korean aggression, while China sees it as a threat to its own security because its radar can peer deep into northeastern China.

However, Xi's comments helped push up the shares of several South Korean companies that rely on the spending of Chinese tourists, whose visits have fallen sharply amid the THAAD dispute.

Lee met separately with other senior Chinese officials, who had more forceful words for the South Korean visitor.

At the same time, leading South Korean automakers Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors cut vehicle production in China as their sales plummeted.

Citing what Moon said during the meeting, Chung Woo-taik, the whip of the Liberty Korea Party, told reporters that President Moon said he had obsessions to fulfill what he said.
