During their talks, President Hu hailed the traditional friendship between China and the DPRK, saying China always treats the relations with the DPRK in a strategic and long-term perspective, and will make joint efforts with the DPRK to upgrade the relationship to benefit the two peoples and to contribute to lasting regional peace and common prosperity.

Hu put forward proposals on deepening China-DPRK ties, which include maintaining high-level contacts, reinforcing strategic coordination, deepening economic and trade cooperation, increasing personnel exchanges and strengthening coordination in international and regional affairs.

Echoing Hu, Kim vowed to lift the DPRK-China friendship to a new high in history.

The DPRK Party and government are determined to inherit and pass on the DPRK-China relations which have seen continuous consolidation and constant development, he said.

Apart from his talks with President Hu, also general secretary of the Communist party of China (CPC) Central Committee, Kim met separately with top legislator Wu Bangguo and Premier Wen Jiabao, both member of the Political Bureau Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee.

Other members of the Political Bureau Standing Committee Jia Qinglin, Li Changchun, Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang and Zhou Yongkang, respectively accompanied Kim during the tour.

Premier Wen told Kim China and the DPRK are witnessing active exchanges and cooperation in various fields and Kim's visit will definitely help further deepen the traditional friendship between the two countries.

Wen visited the DPRK last October to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China-DPRK diplomatic ties.

China will, as always, support the DPRK for developing economy and improving people's livelihood and is willing to introduce to the DPRK the experience of China's reform and opening-up and construction, said Wen.

Wen said China and the DPRK enjoy big potential for developing economic and trade cooperation, urging the two sides to make joint efforts to advance major cooperative projects, quicken the infrastructure construction in border areas and explore new cooperative fields and methods so as to benefit the two peoples.

In his meeting with Kim, Wu Bangguo, chairman of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, said China-DPRK ties have stood tests and seen constant development over the past 60 years.

The meetings of the two countries' leaders and their discussions of bilateral relations are of vital significance for the development of ties in the future, Wu said.
