Moon calls for increased cooperation between S. Korea, China at all levels

President Moon Jae-in on Friday called for increased exchange and cooperation between South Korea and China in all areas to further develop bilateral relations.

"We need communication and exchange between not only the governments of the two countries but in all areas at all levels to further develop the South Korea-China relationship," Moon said during his meeting with Zhang Dejiang, the chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the equivalent of a parliamentary speaker in other countries.

"By the same token, we need more frequent and closer exchange and communication between China's National People's Congress and South Korea's National Assembly, and I ask the chairman to take a special interest toward that end," the South Korean leader said, according to pool reports.

Moon arrived here Wednesday for a four-day state visit that included a bilateral summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Zhang welcomed the outcome of the Moon-Xi meeting, saying the leaders held very full-fledged and in-depth discussions on issues of mutual interest.

"I believe you will show important leadership for the development of China-South Korea relations in the future," he said through his interpreter, according to the pool reports.

Moon was also set to hold talks with Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang here before heading to Chongqing later in the day.

He will return home Saturday. (Yonhap)
