Chinese official visits N.Ko­rea to show support

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il met Thursday in Pyongyang with a top Chinese diplomat, North Korea’s official state media said, as the two countries boosted their “friendly and cooperative relations.” According to the North Korean account, Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo conveyed a greeting from President Hu Jintao and presented Kim with a gift, reinforcing the cozy Pyongyang-Beijing relationship that has drawn recent criticism from the United States and other nations involved in the six party talks about North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
