South Korea's foreign minister, Park Jin, will be sitting down soon for talks with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.
They were due to meet Thursday afternoon for the first time since Park took his post in the new South Korean administration.
The two sides are expected discuss their countries' shared interests, which include the importance of strategic communication and North Korea issues.
That includes Beijing's role in addressing the threat of a North Korean nuclear test.
Also they'll likely cover bilateral cooperation on global supply chains, ways to deal with the pandemic, as well as cultural exchanges in celebration of the 30th anniversary this year of the two countries' diplomatic relations.
