South Korea's foreign minister Chung Eui-yong is holding talks this morning in Seoul with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi.
They are likely to discuss North Korea's recent test-firing of cruise missiles and ways to revive the stalled Korean Peace Process.
Eyes are on what message Wang might send to the U.S.
Also included in the agenda is the further building of Seoul-Beijing ties as they look toward marking 30 years of diplomatic relationship in 2022.
Wang is also expected to pay a courtesy call on President Moon Jae-in.
