 South Korea, China agree to normalize relations after THAAD fallout

South Korea and China have agreed to normalize all forms of cooperation and exchanges "expeditiously" following a year-long standoff over the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea, the South's foreign ministry said in a statement.

"Both sides shared the view that the strengthening of exchange and cooperation between Korea and China serves their common interests and agreed to expeditiously bring exchange and cooperation in all areas back on a normal development track," the statement said.
