SEOUL, May 11 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in will send special envoys to China to discuss issues concerning the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), a senior presidential press secretary said here on Thursday.
Yoon Young-chan told a press conference here on Thursday that President Moon would dispatch separate delegations to discuss THAAD and the DPRK's nuclear program with their Chinese counterparts, although the two issues will be dealt with together.
Yoon said the dispatches were mentioned during the first telephone conversation between Moon and Chinese President Xi Jinping which lasted for 40 minutes beginning at about noon.
Xi has congratulated Moon on his election win and the two leaders agreed to exchange special envoys as soon as possible, according to Yoon.
