Chinese Figure on Stronger Sino-DPRK Relations
Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- I was deeply impressed to visit the DPRK, said Luo Dihui, standing vice-secretary of the Party Committee of the National Tourism Administration who visited the DPRK at the head of a friendship visiting group of China.

He went on to say:

The Korean people are making a dynamic drive to open the gate to a thriving nation in 2012, the centenary of birth of President Kim Il Sung.

We are pleased to learn that the Korean people have achieved big successes in socialist construction under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.

The Korean people's inexhaustible mental power deeply impressed us.

Both China and the DPRK are the friendly neighbors linked with the same mountain and rivers.

The Sino-DPRK friendship has a long history and tradition.

Kim Il Sung provided the friendship between the two countries together with revolutionaries of the elder generation of China including Chairman Mao Zedong and Premier Zhou Enlai.

The armies and peoples of the two countries fought shoulder to shoulder in the period of the anti-Japanese war and the Korean War, winning shining victories.

The two countries have hastened socialist construction, supporting and cooperating with each other.

It is a noble duty for the two peoples to steadily consolidate and develop their friendly and cooperative relations.

The Sino-DPRK friendship is favorably developing with each passing day under the deep care of the top leaders of the two countries.

Exchange and cooperation are brisk between the two countries.

He expressed the conviction that the Sino-DPRK friendship would last forever.
