The first China-DPRK sister cities' meeting was held on Tuesday in Pyongyang, capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
Delegates of the two sides conducted exchanges in expanding mutually beneficial cooperation.
A joint statement signed at the end of the meeting expressed the will of both sides to engage in friendly contacts, and further strengthen communication and cooperation.
The delegation, made up of Chinese sister cities' deputies, and headed by Wu Donghe, chairman of the China-DPRK Friendship Association, arrived in Pyongyang last Friday for a six-day visit.
China set Jiangsu and Sichuan provinces, and the cities of Jilin, Huichun, Tianjin, Changchun with the DPRK's Kangwon province, South Pyongan, the Pyongyang Mangyongdae District, and the cities of Rason, Nampho, and Chongjin as sister cities following Shanghai's establishment of the same relations with the DPRK city of Hamhung in 1982.
