PYONGYANG, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Yang Hyong Sop, vice-president of the Presidium of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), met with a visiting China-DPRK friendship delegation here on Wednesday.

During the meeting, Yang said this year marked the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War. The Chinese volunteers fought side by side with the DPRK army against U.S.-led forces.

"The DPRK-China friendship was built in the tough war," he said, adding: "the traditional friendship fostered by the elder generation of revolutionaries of the two countries will be further strengthened and promoted."

Head of the 32-member delegation Xin Qi, also vice-president of the China Association for International Friendly Contact, shared with Yang's view. He said members of the Chinese delegation can always feel the deep friendship during the week-long visit, noting that the DPRK people take good care of the tombs of the Chinese People's Volunteers martyrs.

Members of the Chinese delegation included many veterans of the Chinese People's Volunteers and their offsprings. They came to the DPRK at the invitation of DPRK-China Friendship Association.
