Kim Jong Il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), reiterated on Monday the country's persistent stance to realize the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The sincerity of relevant parties to resume the six-party talks is very important, Kim said during a meeting with Wang Jiarui, head of the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

The DPRK is willing to make efforts with China to further strengthen the communication and coordination, Kim said.

The stalled six-party talks involve the DPRK, South Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the United States.

Kim highly commended China's achievements in economic and social development, and believed that his country's relationship with China would further develop in the future.

Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries as well as the "Year of the DPRK-China Friendship," during which series of activities demonstrated the dynamism of the bilateral friendship, said Kim.

He also wished the exchanges between the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and the CPC be intensified.

Wang delivered to Kim a letter from Chinese President Hu Jintao, who extended Spring Festival greetings to the WPK and the DPRK government and people on behalf of the CPC, the Chinese government and the Chinese people.

Hu said in the letter that China highly treasures its relations with the DPRK and is ready to deepen traditional friendship, enhance cooperation, and make joint efforts with the DPKR to maintain peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

The Chinese president also invited Kim to visit China once again.

The Chinese delegation led by Wang arrived here Saturday for a goodwill visit.
