Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in Seoul this afternoon for talks with his South Korean counterpart Kyung Kyung-wha.
It's his first visit since bilateral ties soured over South Korea's deployment of the U.S. missile defense system THAAD back in 2016.
The two diplomats are expected to discuss bilateral relations, the situation on the Korean Peninsula. as well as other regional issues.
Also on the agenda might be President Moon Jae-in's visit to Chengdu later this month for a trilateral summit with China and Japan, and a possible visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to South Korea.
They will also likely discuss ways to fully restore their economic ties that were hurt by Beijing's retaliation over THAAD.
Meanwhile, Wang will pay a courtesy call to President Moon Jae-in on Thursday.
