China, NK pledge to strengthen bilateral relations

THE ruling parties of China and North Korea have pledged to strengthen inter-party exchanges, and push forward the development of relations between the two countries.

The pledge was made during a four-day visit to North Korea by Song Tao, special envoy of Communist Party of China General Secretary Xi Jinping, which ended yesterday.

Song, who is also head of the CPC Central Committee’s International Department, held talks with leaders of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), during which he outlined the main spirit and historical contribution of the 19th CPC National Congress in Beijing last month.

The WPK congratulated the CPC on the overall success of its national congress, and expressed the wish that under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi at the core, the Chinese people will make tremendous achievements in building a great modern socialist country with Chinese characteristics and realizing the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

The two sides also exchanged views on relations between the two parties and the two countries, and on the Korean Peninsula issue and other issues of common concern. They expressed a wish to strengthen inter-party exchanges and develop their relationship.

During his stay, Song visited some local institutions in Pyongyang and paid homage to the martyrs of the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army at a cemetery in Hoechang County in South Phyongan Province.

Earlier, during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang, Xi encouraged South Korea to resume contact and dialogue with North Korea and restart cooperation with a view to reconciliation.

At his recent meeting with US President Donald Trump in Beijing, Xi reiterated China’s commitment to denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and solving the nuclear issue through dialogue and negotiation.

“The two sides will continue to fully and strictly implement UN Security Council resolutions and stay committed to solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue through dialogue and negotiation,” Xi said.
