China Pictorial (English) - - Express | News -

De­cem­ber 14, Bei­jing: Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping wel­comes Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in of the Repub­lic of Korea (ROK) with a cer­e­mony be­fore their talks at the Great Hall of the Peo­ple. Dur­ing the meet­ing, the two lead­ers agreed to ad­vance bi­lat­eral re­la­tions to en­sure the long-term sta­bil­ity of Chi­naROK ties. Con­sid­er­ing that the two coun­tries have im­por­tant com­mon in­ter­ests in main­tain­ing the peace and sta­bil­ity of the Korean Penin­sula, Xi said China will con­tinue to strengthen com­mu­ni­ca­tion and co­or­di­na­tion with the ROK in main­tain­ing sta­bil­ity and pre­vent­ing the out­break of war on the penin­sula through the pro­mo­tion of peace and talks.

Moon’s visit ev­i­dences that China-rok re­la­tions are “en­ter­ing a new phase” as the two coun­tries be­come closer through ex­chang­ing strate­gic views in the face of in­creas­ing pres­sure on the sta­bil­ity of the Korean Penin­sula.

Moon made a state visit to China from De­cem­ber 13 to 16. This was his fifth trip to China and first as pres­i­dent of the ROK.
