Zhou served as vice minister of the Ministry of the Petroleum Industry from 1985 to 1988 and went on to work as deputy general manager of the China National Petroleum and Natural Gas Corporation from 1988 to 1996.

He said China has been actively promoting reforms in its energy sector during the country's 12th Five-year Plan period (2011-2015).

Hailing the sound momentum of China-DPRK relations, Zhou recalled Kim's successful visit to China earlier this year, during which Kim exchanged views with President Hu Jintao on major issues of common concern.

Kim also sent a congratulatory letter to Hu regarding the 90th anniversary of the CPC's founding, Zhou said.

"We are glad to see that the two sides have engaged in high-level exchanges and substantial cooperation in various areas and made concerted efforts for common development and regional peace and stability," he said.

Thae also conveyed greetings from Kim to Hu during the meeting.

The DPRK delegation is visiting China from July 5 to 9 at the invitation of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.
