The Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the China-Korea Friendship Association jointly hosted a banquet in Beijing on September 17 on the occasion of the 73rd founding anniversary of the DPRK.

Invited there were Ri Ryong Nam, DPRK ambassador to China, and his embassy staff members.

It was also attended by Lin Songtian, president of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, and other officials from the International Liaison Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Central Military Commission of China.

The DPRK has made great progress in implementing the socialist cause while overcoming all manner of difficulties for the past 73 years, Lin Songtian said, wishing the Korean people greater success in their efforts to carry out the decisions of the Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea under the leadership of the WPK headed by General Secretary Kim Jong Un.

He noted that friendship between China and the DPRK, which was provided and cultivated by the leaders of the two parties and two countries in the course of protracted revolutionary struggle and socialist construction, has steadily developed to be handed over as common wealth generation after generation, despite the changes of international situation and times.

He affirmed that they would extensively fulfil the important joint recognition achieved by top leaders of the two countries to creditably defend and favourably develop bilateral relations, so as to bring well-being to the peoples of the two countries and further promote the development of socialist cause.

DPRK ambassador Ri Ryong Nam said that the founding of the DPRK was the birth of an independent and popular country in the 5 000-year history of the nation and a great event that ushered in a new era in the building of a powerful country.

Under the wise leadership of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, the Korean people are waging a dynamic struggle to implement the first year task of the five-year plan for national economic development set forth at the Eighth Congress of the WPK, he noted.

He said that he would make positive efforts together with the Chinese comrades to consolidate the bilateral ties of friendship and cooperation that have developed onto a new higher stage as intended by the top leaders of the two countries.

There was an artistic performance of the Chinese artistes and children at the banquet.
