S. Korea, China discuss relations, N. Korea - report

South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin had a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi (pictured) on Tuesday, in which they discussed the bilateral relationship between the two countries and the North Korean nuclear threat. The ministers agreed that their stances on Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), which South Korea uses as a deterrence to the North, should not be an obstacle to Beijing- Seoul relations, according to Yonhap News Agency.

Park informed Wang of South Korea's participation in a preliminary meeting of the Chip 4 alliance, which will also be attended by the United States, Japan, and Taiwan. Wang, in response, added that both sides need to "maintain independence and self-reliance" with no "external obstacles."
