Chinese President Xi Jinping has expressed hope for an "early visit" to South Korea as soon as conditions allow.
Cheong Wa Dae said Xi made the remarks during a phone call with President Moon Jae-in Tuesday evening.
It marked their first conversation in nearly eight months.
Moon told Xi that he expects they will continue discussions on the future visit once the COVID-19 situation stabilizes, according to presidential spokesman Kang Min-seok.
Moon also requested that China play a constructive role in resolving pending Korean Peninsula issues through dialogue.
In response, President Xi said Beijing supports inter-Korean talks as well as nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the United States.
The two leaders also declared 2022 as the South Korea-China year of cultural exchanges.
