Park’s special envoys arrive in ChinaA delegation of special envoys appointed by South Korean President-elect Park Geun-hye arrived in Beijing yesterday on a four-day visit aimed at bolstering two-way cooperation over North Korea and other bilateral issues.
“We came to create an opportunity to build new trust [between South Korea and China],” Kim Moo-sung, the leader of the four-member delegation, told reporters after arriving at Beijing Capital International Airport.
Kim, a key manager of Park’s presidential campaign last year, was joined by Representatives Shim Yoon-joe and Cho Won-jin of Park’s ruling Saenuri Party and Han Seok-hee, a professor of international relations at Seoul’s Yonsei University. They are scheduled to meet with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi later in the day.
Tomorrow, the delegation is scheduled to pay a courtesy call to China’s next leader Xi Jinping and deliver a personal letter from Park.
