China highly appraised this.
Comrade Kim Jeong-eun’s special visit to China reflects his high regard for strategic communication between China and DPRK, and I highly appreciate this.
Xi Jinping stressed that in less than 3 months, I met with Comrade chairman in 3 meetings, pointing out the direction for the development of the relations between the two parties and opening a new chapter in the development of China – DPRK relations. The Chinese party and the government attach great importance to the friendly and cooperative relations between China and the DPRK. No matter how the international and regional situation changes, the firm position of the Chinese party and the government to consolidate the relations between China and the DPRK will not change. The friendship between the Chinese people and the Korean people will not change, and China’s support for the socialist DPRK will not change. I would like to work with Comrade General chairman to continue to implement the important consensus reached between the two sides and promote the long-term healthy and stable development of China DPRK relations for the benefit of the two countries and the two peoples.
Xi Jinping pointed out that this year is China’s reform and opening up 40th anniversary, since the reform and opening up, the Chinese people based on the national conditions, the world, the courage to self revolution, self innovation, to explore a road in line with its own national conditions. We are pleased to see that the DPRK has made a major decision to shift its focus to economic construction, and the development of socialism in Korea has entered a new historical stage. We support North Korea’s economic development and people’s livelihood improvement, and support the DPRK’s development path in line with its national conditions.
Kim Jeong-eun said he was very happy to see General Secretary Xi Jinping again shortly afterwards. He stressed that China is our great friendly neighbor. Comrade Xi Jinping is a great leader whom we respect and trust very much. Thank you and Comrade Xi Jinping and the Chinese party, government and people for their sincere friendship and valuable support to me and the party, the government and the people of the DPRK. I will lead all the party members of the Labor Party and the Korean people to conscientiously implement the important consensus I have reached with Comrade General Secretary, and raise the unbreakable relations between the north and the middle to a new and higher level.
Xi Jinping pointed out that, for some time, with the joint efforts of all parties concerned, the Peninsula issue has returned to the correct track of dialogue and consultation, and the situation of the peninsula is developing towards a peaceful and stable direction. Comrade Kim Jeong-eun has made positive efforts to realize the denuclearization of the peninsula and maintain peace on the peninsula. The meeting between the DPRK and the US took an important step in the process of political settlement of the Peninsula nuclear issue. I hope the DPRK and the United States will implement the outcome of the summit meeting, and the parties concerned will form a concerted effort to jointly push forward the peninsula peace process. China will, as always, play a constructive role.
Kim Jeong-eun said that the DPRK US summit meeting held recently has achieved positive results in line with the interests of all parties and the international community. If the two sides can implement the summit consensus step by step, the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will open a new major prospect. The DPRK thanked and highly appreciated the important role China played in promoting the denuclearization of the peninsula and safeguarding the peace and stability of the peninsula. We hope to work with the Chinese side and the relevant parties to promote the construction of a lasting and firm peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula and to work together for the realization of a lasting peace on the peninsula.
