The Chinese authorities advocate strengthening friendly relations with Russia

Небо

This was stated by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lin Jian.

Lin Jian made such a statement commenting on a possible visit to Pyongyang by Russian President Vladimir Putin. When asked by a South Korean journalist whether the Russian leader is planning a meeting with Kim Jong-un, the representative of the Foreign Ministry could not give an exact answer.

Lin Jian said that this issue concerns the planning of contacts between Russia and the DPRK, and noted that it was inconvenient for him to comment on it. Nevertheless, he said that Beijing welcomes the fact that Russia is strengthening and developing traditional friendly relations with the relevant countries.

In addition, the official representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry recalled that in 2024 Beijing and Pyongyang celebrate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. China and the DPRK are states that maintain good—neighborly relations, he stressed.
