Diplomatic relations were established between the DPRK and the PRC on Oct. 6 1949. It was a historic occasion which powerfully propelled the development of the DPRK-China friendly relations.

The friendly relations between the two countries have developed under the great care of the preceding leaders of the two countries.

The DPRK-China friendship, which was personally provided and flourished by the preceding leaders, is now undergoing continuous development in line with the requirements of the new era.

Several meetings between Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and President Xi Jinping demonstrated to the world that immutable and invincible is the DPRK-China friendship formed in a joint struggle for independence and socialism against imperialism on the basis of the common intention and feelings, and contributed to further cementing the bilateral friendly relations which have got a fresh impetus.

It is the steadfast will of our Party and government to creditably carry forward the friendly relations between the two countries and develop them on a new high level down through generations whatever the international situation.

The Korean people actively support the Chinese people in their efforts for achieving social stability and safeguarding the country's sovereignty and for making sustainable development of economy and winning a new victory of the cause of socialism with the Chinese characteristics under the leadership of the Communist Party of China with Xi Jinping as its core.
