A senior official of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Wednesday that the DPRK would make efforts to move forward military ties with China.

Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, met a delegation from the Shenyang Military Region in northeastern China at the Mansudae Assembly Hall.

Kim said the traditional DPRK-China friendship, which was fostered by the older generation of revolutionaries of the two countries, would be further strengthened under the care of the two countries' current leaders.

Zhang Youxia, head of the Chinese delegation and commander of the Shenyang Military Region, conveyed Chinese leaders' greetings to Kim.

Zhang said the Chinese side is keen to consolidate the China-DPRK friendship, adding the Shenyang Military Region will make active efforts to further develop bilateral military exchanges and cooperation.

Kim Yong Chun, vice-chairman of the DPRK National Defense Commission and minister of the People's Armed Forces, Tuesday met the Chinese delegation, which arrived in Pyongyang on Aug. 25.
