China and South Korea fail to extend $56bn currency swap

China and South Korea have failed to extend their $56bn currency swap deal amid diplomatic tension over Seoul’s instalment of a controversial US missile shield. The extension of the eight-year-old deal had been seen as a yardstick for relations between the two neighbours, which have frayed over Seoul’s deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence despite Beijing’s opposition.
