At the G20, Chinese President Xi Jinping told his South Korean counterpart on Monday that Beijing opposes the deployment of the United States' THAAD missile defense system to South Korea.
"Mishandling the issue is not conducive to strategic stability in the region and could intensify disputes," Xi told Park Geun-hye.
