VIENTIANE, July 24 (Yonhap) -- China blamed South Korea on Sunday for hurting their trust by pushing to deploy an advanced missile system on the Korean Peninsula despite its strong opposition.

The remarks were made by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi before starting talks with his South Korean counterpart, Yun Byung-se, on the sidelines of a regional security forum.

"The recent behavior from South Korea has undermined the foundation for our bilateral trust," Wang said through an interpreter, voicing his displeasure apparently with the joint decision by Seoul and Washington to place the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system on the peninsula.

"Now I will hear what Minister Yun has to say. In particular, I will hear what kind of practical actions South Korea will take to protect the unwavering relations between us," he added.
