The top lawmaker of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Thursday met with a senior Chinese legislator on efforts to further the friendly ties and legislative cooperation between their two countries.

The DPRK-China relations had withstood the test of history since their diplomatic links were established 60 years ago, said Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly (SPA) of the DPRK, during talks with Chen Zhili, vice-chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) of China.

The relations not only benefited the two peoples, but also contributed to the peace and stability of Asia and the world, he said.

This year marked the "Year of DPRK-China Friendship" and had witnessed frequent high-level visits between the two countries, Kim said.

He said the DPRK attached great importance to the exchanges between the legislatures of both countries, which he said would help boost their traditional friendship.

The China-DPRK friendship, fostered by the older generation of leaders of the two countries, had prospered despite constant changes in the international situation, said Chen.

China would work with the DPRK to further their relations and bring benefit to the two peoples, she said. The NPC would continue to strengthen exchange and cooperation with the SPA and inject new vitality into their bilateral ties, she added.
