A special envoy of the President of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Moon Jae-in said here Thursday that the ROK fully understands China's reasonable concern over the deployment of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system.

The ROK side realized that the deployment of the THAAD has harmed ROK-China mutual trust and exchanges, the special envoy Lee Hae-chan told Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, according to a Chinese official press release.

The ROK is ready to look for a proper solution to the issue with sincerity, said Lee.
