DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman on DPRK Visit by Chinese Foreign Ministry Delegation

A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA Friday as regards the DPRK visit paid by vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of China:

The delegation of the Chinese Foreign Ministry headed by its Vice-Minister Liu Zhenmin visited the DPRK from Feb. 17 to 20 and paid a courtesy call on its foreign minister and met with officials of the Foreign Ministry and the relevant unit and had talks and conservations with them.

At the talks and conversations both sides had an in-depth exchange of views on the DPRK-China relations, the regional situation, the resumption of the six-party talks and other issues of mutual concern and reached a common understanding.

Both sides discussed the issues of boosting the traditional DPRK-China friendship and, to this end, promoting the exchange of high-level delegations between the two countries and significantly commemorating the 65th anniversary of the establishment of the DPRK-China diplomatic relations this year.

As regards the situation on the Korean peninsula and in the region, the Chinese side positively appreciated the fact that the DPRK side fully showed its sincerity to stabilize the situation and improve the inter-Korean relations by taking important measures in the new year and emphasis was put on the DPRK side's stand that the development of the situation in the future depends on the attitude of the U.S. and south Korea.

Both sides decided to make joint efforts to defend peace and stability in the peninsula and the region and resume the six-party talks.
