Chinese President Xi Jinping and South Korean President Moon Jae-in reportedly agreed on key principles to resolve the nuclear crisis on the Korean peninsula when they met in Beijing on Thursday.

The two leaders later presided over the signing of seven agreements covering cooperation in areas from food safety to the Winter Olympics.

The visitor said: "In North Korea you should always look not just in front, at the show they want you to look at, but at the back or the sides for interesting things".

"For reasons known to all, China-South Korea relations have experienced some setbacks", Xi said before meeting the South Korean president, quoted in Bloomberg. While the two share a common goal of the denuclearization of the peninsula, China disapproves of South Korea's joint military drills with the USA and the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system which, Beijing claims, could interfere with their country's defense system.

South Korea is demanding a formal apology from Beijing after a South Korean photojournalist was severely beaten by more than a dozen Chinese guards while attempting to cover a state visit by its president, Moon Jae-in.

He and another photographer, who was less seriously hurt, were due to return to South Korea on Friday for further treatment. The visit is also aimed at bringing Seoul and Beijing closer on the thorny question of North Korea, whose nuclear program has raised tensions across the peninsula.

A visit to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, by Chinese special envoy Song Tao last month appears to have created no breakthroughs.
