China’s commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng mentioned on Thursday he wasn’t aware connected having a North Korean economic delegation visiting China now.
A few with direct understanding in the matter told Reuters this year’s week the delegation would reach Beijing to talk about food supplies and trade issues since the coronavirus outbreak has seriously disrupted North Korea’s food. The delegation was scheduled to fulfill with Chinese commerce ministry officials, they mentioned.
Gao told reporters through the briefing that China and North Korea were maintaining friendly relations but mentioned he was lacking understanding in the delegation into consideration, adding he wanted the press would produce responsible reports based on details.
