BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told his South Korean counterpart on Wednesday that China is "resolutely opposed" to the U.S. deployment of an advanced anti-missile system in South Korea, China's foreign ministry said.

China hopes South Korea and China can meet each other half way and find an appropriate resolution that both sides can accept, Wang added.
