SEOUL (REUTERS) - South Korean president Moon Jae In will hold a summit with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Saturday (Nov 11), South Korea's presidential office said in a statement on Friday.

Last week, Seoul and Beijing agreed to move beyond a year-long stand-off over the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea, a dispute that has been devastating to South Korean businesses that rely on Chinese consumers.

The two leaders will both attend the APEC summit of Asia Pacific leaders in Vietnam's central city of Danang.
