South Korea’s ousted president Park Geun-Hye, 65, is the third former South Korean leader to stand trial for corruption.
Beijing imposed a boycott on March 15 on Chinese tour groups visiting the South in a spat over the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system.
Park was impeached by the National Assembly on charges of corruption in December 2016.
Ties between the two countries soured in recent months over the deployment of the powerful THAAD shield in South Korea, which Beijing sees as a threat to its own military capability.
Moon Jae-In promise to reopen the probe came after Chun said that he was made a scapegoat after democracy was restored in a bid to draw a line under the bloodbath.
Sweeping policy changes on the left are almost untenable in the divided National Assembly, where Moon Jae-in’s Democratic Party holds only 40 percent of the 299 seats, say experts.
New South Korean President Moon Jae-in vowed during his election campaign to close the old coal power plants and review a plan to add coal power generation.
The mission urged all UN member states to support North Korea in its efforts.
The Chinese President said he had always greatly valued South Korea and relations between the two countries.
“Moon might not be able to reopen Kaesong right away but he will follow steps toward it in the course of improving South-North Korean relations.”
While its relations with Pyongyang is very strategic owing to historical influences, China has said its diplomatic channels with North Korea remain open.
“It is possible the North may wage greater provocations such as a nuclear test timed with various anniversaries including the Supreme People’s Assembly,” said Hwang, acting leader since former President Park Geun-hye was removed over a graft scandal.
Beijing deployed millions of soldiers in the 1950-53 conflict, saving the fledging North from defeat by US-led UN forces and South Korea. More than 180,000 Chinese soldiers are estimated to have died in the war
The ambassador also denounced South Korea saying its southern neighbour was putting Malaysia under pressure so as to tarnish the relationship between the two countries.
New types of cyberattacks linked to IoT devices against government agencies and social infrastructure-related facilities are likely to increase.
