Ji Jae Ryong, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the People’s Republic of China (PRC), has recently visited Shaanxi Province, located in the area of midstream of Yellow River in northwestern China, at the invitation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of PRC.
During the visit, the Ambassador looked around several places in Xi’an, starting point of the ancient Silk Road, and Yan’an, revolutionary base during the early days, including Shaanxi Automobile Holding Group Co., Ltd., Museum of Qin Dynasty Terracotta Warriors and Battle Steeds, and Yan’an Revolutionary Memorial Hall, and learned about the successes achieved by Shaanxi Province in its efforts for lifting poverty and protecting ecological environment.
Shaanxi is well-known to our people.
The great leader President Kim Il Sung during his visit to PRC in September 1982 left indelible trace in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, looking around the historic relics, including the Museum of Qin Dynasty Terracotta Warriors and Battle Steeds, which speak to the history of China and the creative talent and wisdom of the Chinese people.
Our people still keep in mind the people of Shaanxi Province who so enthusiastically welcomed President Kim Il Sung and offered him warm hospitality with all sincerity during his visit to Xi’an.
General Secretary Xi Jinping during his inspection of Shaanxi Province in April this year appreciated the successes achieved in its effort for lifting poverty, and underlined the need to achieve decisive victory this year in the offensive for accomplishing the goal to build a moderately prosperous society in all aspects and to lift poverty.
Shaanxi Province is now having remarkable successes in its fight for realizing the Chinese dream by shaking off the backwardness and poverty of the past and actively promoting excellent traditional culture, revolutionary culture and socialist advanced culture of the Chinese nation.
Shaanxi Province, etched in the page of history of the DPRK-PRC friendship and showcasing the long history, culture and tradition of the Chinese nation, will certainly achieve greater progress in the future under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.
