This year is a year full of climaxes in the history of relations between China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), a visiting senior Chinese official said Monday.

Zhou Yongkang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks during a meeting with DPRK top leder Kim Jong Il before leaving the country after a three-day official visit.

Zhou, also secretary of the CPC Central Commission of Political and Legal Affairs, said the top DPRK leader paid two visits to China in less than four months and exchanged views and reached concensus with Chinese President Hu Jintao on issues of common concern, which effectively boosted the deepening and development of relations of the two countries and parties.

China felt that the fact that the two top leaders spoke to each other heart to heart fully proved that China and the DPRK were intimate comrades and true friends, Zhou said.

The Chinese party and government were willing to carefully safegurad and constantly develop the friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries together with the DPRK and to make unremitting efforts to safeguard regional peace and stability and reach common development, Zhou said.

Currently and henceforth, China was in a pivotal period of building a well-off society in an all-round way and also in an important period of deepening reform and opening-up and accelerating the transformation of economic growth pattern, Zhou said.

The 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) was now busy preparing its fifth plenary session during which it would discuss the formulation of China's 12th Five-Year Program (2011-2015), Zhou said.

China was ready to learn from the DPRK and constantly make progress together with Pyongyang in the path of building socialism and push the Sino-DPRK friendship to go on for generations to come, he added.

Zhou said he was honored to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) together with the DPRK people.
