It's also believed Hong Seok-hyun spoke to McCain, who is chairman of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, . about the deployment of the U.S. THAAD missile defense system to South Korea.

Xi's remarks came in a meeting Friday with South Korean special envoy Lee Hae-chan, who was dispatched to Beijing by South Korea's new president on a mission to reopen contacts and seek a way out of the current impasse, which has hit South Korean businesses hard.

"China, too, pays great attention to the bilateral ties", Xi said in comments in front of reporters in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, according to Reuters.

Ties between the two countries have soured in recent months over the deployment of the powerful Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) shield in South Korea, which Beijing sees as a threat to its own military capability.

Lee also presented the Chinese leader with a hand-written letter from President Moon.

China "is committed to resolving any issues through dialogue and coordination, which is in the fundamental interests of both countries and the region", Xi was quoted as saying by China's official Xinhua News Agency.

While the Middle Euphrates River Valley corridor may be the next key battleground, USA officials believe it will not be the last. While U.S. military advisers worked in concert with the Iraqi army in the Mosul fight, the Raqqa fight will be different.

In a separate meeting with Mr Lee yesterday, China's top diplomat, Mr Yang Jiechi, said China "hopes that South Korea can respect China's major concerns (and) appropriately resolve the Thaad issue", Xinhua reported.

The long-disputed THAAD deployment was constantly opposed by China, which has urged a peaceful solution to the Korean crisis. McCain has spoken out about the economic retaliation China has taken against South Korea for hosting the system. "Seoul needs to make a choice between deploying THAAD and resuming Sino-South Korean relations". Shares in AmorePacific, its largest cosmetics firm, were up 0.9 percent.

Moon sent envoys to the United States, China, Japan and the European Union this week in what the government calls "pre-emptive diplomacy".

China has been infuriated by the USA deployment of the Thaad system in South Korea, saying it was a threat to its security and would do nothing to ease tensions with Pyongyang.

For his part, Lee said Moon asked him to express his "gratitude" to Xi for his message of congratulations after the election.
