Undying exploits shine along with history of DPRK-China friendship

August 26, 2023

The two parties and peoples of the DPRK and China have recorded a proud history of friendship in the course of the protracted struggle to defend and glorify the socialist cause.

The history of the development of DPRK-China relations, which have been consolidated into those of comrades who completely trust each other and invincible strategic ones, is associated with the undying exploits performed by Chairman Kim Jong Il.

On his return home after visiting the Siberian and Far East regions of the Russian Federation from August 25 to 27 2011, he visited the People’s Republic of China while passing through its northeastern region.

He passed the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region of China on August 25 and Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces on August 26-27.

As he travelled via different cities and regions of China, he had a better understanding of the construction of the Chinese people, their thoughts and feelings, politics, the economy, history and culture, and conducted energetic external activities, making a great contribution to boosting the DPRK-China friendship.

The passage and visit of Chairman Kim Jong Il to Northeast China were successfully made under the special concern of Hu Jintao, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China at the time, and the party, government and people of China.

The Chairman expressed his satisfaction over this, offering his heartfelt thanks to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, the state council, and the leading officials and people of the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region and Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces for their kind and cordial hospitality.

His passage through and visit to Northeast China marked another important occasion in fully demonstrating the traditional relations of friendship and cooperation between the two parties and the two countries and further consolidating the bonds of friendship between the peoples of the two countries.

The Chairman made tireless efforts and worked heart and soul to steadily consolidate and develop the DPRK-China friendship till the last moments of his life.

Today the DPRK-China friendship is promoted onto a new level.

Kim Jong Un, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and president of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, met Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and president of the People's Republic of China, on several occasions. Their meetings marked important milestones which put the traditional DPRK-China friendship on a new high stage and steadily developed it as required by the new era.

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un met the Chinese party and government delegation on a visit to Pyongyang on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of victory in the Fatherland Liberation War last July and repeatedly expressed his thanks to Xi Jinping for sending a party and government delegation to the significant event in celebration of the victory common to the DPRK and China and sending a letter of best wishes to him. And he extended his heartfelt gratitude to the Communist Party of China, the government of the PRC and all the Chinese people for having aided our revolutionary war at the cost of their blood and invariably supporting the just cause of our Party and people.

The intimate friendly ties and genuine comradely friendship between the leaders of the two parties and the two countries serve as the driving force for the DPRK-China friendship to develop steadily, unaffected by any change in the situation and challenge.

Socialist construction in the two countries is dynamically pushed forward in the new historical journey.

The peoples of the DPRK and China will as ever boost the bilateral ties of friendship onto a higher level in a comprehensive way, continue to strongly promote the socialist cause in the two countries and firmly defend peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the rest of the world.
