SEOUL, Jan 8 (Reuters) - South Korea's Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se will speak with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi over the phone at 1000 GMT on Friday, the South's foreign ministry said in a text message to reporters.

The two ministers teleconference comes in the wake of a North Korean nuclear test earlier this week that has increased tensions between the two Koreas. (Reporting by Christine Kim; Editing by Michael Perry)
