PRC President XI Jinping visited SNU and became the first PRC president to give a public lecture in South Korea. President Xi promised that “China will become a great country of peace, cooperation and learning” and that “South Korea and China must cooperate in order for Asia to develop.” He also stated his opposition to nuclear arms on the Korean peninsula, and added that “North Korea’s nuclear problem and other Korean peninsula problems must be solved through talks and negotiations.” Speaking to the youth of Korea, he urged them to actively partake in cultural exchange programs to deepen the friendship between Korea and China.
