China denies signing military supply deal with ROK


08:36, June 01, 2012

BEIJING, May 31 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday denied signing an agreement regarding the exchange of military supplies with the Republic of Korea (ROK).

Although China holds an active attitude toward the development of military ties with the ROK, the two countries have not signed such an agreement, despite what some ROK media organizations have reported, Ministry of Defense spokesman Yang Yujun said at a Thursday press briefing.

Yang added that military relations between China and the ROK have witnessed stable development in recent years.

He cited the 2008 establishment of a direct phone line between the navies and air forces of both countries, adding that the line has been used many times to coordinate rescues and prevent misunderstandings.

"The establishment of the direct phone line is the example of the two countries promoting friendship and enhancing mutual trust," Yang said.

When asked whether China will sign military exchange agreements with the armed forces of other neighboring countries, Yang said China attaches great importance to its relations with the armed forces of its neighbors.
