Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang met Park Tae-sung, member and vice-chairman of the Politburo of the Workers’ Party of Korea, and his delegation on May 19.

Li welcomed his guests and said President Xi Jinping and leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Kim Jong-un, met in Beijing in March and again in China’s city Dalian about ten days ago. The meetings of the top leaders of the two countries charted a roadmap for the Sino-DPRK relations.

Shanghai is the birthplace of the Communist Party of China as well as a piloting field for China’s opening-up and reforms. The city is working hard to build itself into an international economic, financial, trade, shipping center and a technology and innovation center.

Shanghai is willing to work with DPRK to promote the two sides’ diplomatic relations to benefit the people of both countries, Li added.

Park said the top leaders of both countries have ushered in a new era for the Sino-DPRK relations. Shanghai is a modern metropolis and an example of China’s economic development and opening-up and reforms. DPRK hopes to take advantage of this opportunity to learn from China’s experience to better carry out the development strategy with economy as its priority.

Wang Yajun, vice-minister of International Department of the CPC Central Committee, Zhuge Yujie, secretary-general of the CPC Shanghai Committee and Xu Kunlin, vice-mayor of Shanghai, also attended the meeting.
