President Moon heads to Vietnam, bilateral summit with China's Xi Jinping

The leaders of South Korea and China on Saturday reaffirmed their joint efforts to peacefully resolve North Korea's nuclear problem in a summit highlighting the recent normalization of bilateral ties estranged by the deployment of a U.S. missile defense system in South Korea.

Korean President Moon Jae-in, left, and Chinese President Xi Jinping, right, shake hands before their bilateral summit meeting on Saturday in Danang, Vietnam, on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders' meeting.

The two leaders last met in July in Berlin, on the sidelines of the Group of 20, or G-20, summit.

The People's Daily, an official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party, quoted Xi as saying in the Saturday summit in Vietnam that China and South Korea are inseparable neighbors in a cooperative partnership.
