BEIJING, Oct 28 (Asia Free Press): China’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi met North Korea’s ambassador to China on Thursday and expressed Beijing’s willingness to maintain high-level interactions and strengthen strategic coordination, according to China’s foreign ministry.
In a statement, the ministry said, both sides exchanged views on the Korean Peninsula and other issues of common concern.
China is North Korea’s sole major ally, and has played a leading role in efforts to press the isolated country to dismantle its nuclear programme.
North Korea has persisted with military development, including a recent missile test, despite international sanctions over its nuclear weapons and missile programmes.
