BEIJING, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese political advisor Jia Qinglin met with the deputy speaker of the Republic of Korea's (ROK) National Assembly, Chung Eui-hwa, here Wednesday, and the two sides pledged to strengthen bilateral strategic communication.

Hailing the increased communication and coordination between the two countries in major regional and international issues, Jia, Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said China hopes to strengthen strategic communication with the ROK.

Chung said the political, economic and cultural relationships between the ROK and China have witnessed comprehensive development since the two countries established diplomatic ties 18 years ago.
