Beijing, May 28 (KCNA) — A photo exhibition opened at the Metropolitan Library in Beijing on May 27 under the co-sponsorship of the Korean Cameramen’s Union Central Committee and the Chinese Photographers’ Association on the occasion of the first anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s unofficial visit to China.
On display at the exhibition are more than 70 photographs showing the whole course of Kim Jong Il’s visit to China including the meeting and the talks between General Secretary Kim Jong Il and Hu Jintao, general secretary of the C.C., the Communist Party of China and president of the People’s Republic of China.
A vice-secretary general of the association in his speech said that in that period the top leaders of the two countries exchanged views on the issues of boosting the ties between the two parties and two countries and the bilateral economic and trade cooperation and other issues of mutual concern and reached a consensus.
Noting that the traditional Sino-DPRK friendship provided and developed by Chairman Mao Zedong and other Chinese leaders of the elder generation and President Kim Il Sung is a common treasure of the two countries, he hoped that the exhibition would provide an opportunity of further expanding and developing the friendship between the two countries.
Present at the opening ceremony were officials of the China Federation of Literature and Art Circles, the Chinese Association for Cultural Exchanges with Foreign Countries and the Chinese Photographers’ Association and people from all walks of life.
Also present there were the delegation of the Korean Cameramen’s Union led by Choe Kyong Guk, chairman of its Central Committee who is director and editor-in-chief of the Foreign Languages Publishing House, and the DPRK ambassador to China and staff members of the embassy.
