Beijing has again urged Seoul to ensure that a US anti-missile system installed in southern South Korea not infringe on China’s security interests.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi issued the call over the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in talks with his South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung-wha in Beijing on Wednesday.
Wang said Seoul should be committed to its earlier statement of not joining the US-led regional missile defence system.
“There is a saying in China that promises must be kept and action must be resolute. We hope that South Korea will continue to properly handle this problem,” he said.
