Chinese Ambassador Assures THAAD Issue Won't Affect Economic Ties

The Chinese Ambassador to South Korea has suggested that the conflict between Seoul and Beijing over the planned deployment of a THAAD battery won't affect their economic ties.
Speaking at a forum hosted by the Association of High Potential Enterprises of Korea on Wednesday, Ambassador Qiu Guohong said that it would be normal for his government to take appropriate measures if a factor in Seoul-Washington relations affects China.

While avoiding making a specific reference to the THAAD issue, the Chinese diplomat then sought to ease concerns of the businessman, saying that the factor won't reach outside of bilateral governmental and military exchanges.

He likened Seoul-Beijing relations to that between a married couple, assuring that the ties are on the right track when looking at the long-term picture.
