Com. Dedo via message no 72 of 25 of this month reports:

The Chinese ambassador, in a conversation with me, confirmed that:

- there has been a cooling of China-DPRK relations, mainly as a result of increased volume of trade between China and South Korea, their refusal to boycott the Seoul Olympics and their restraint in Pyongyang’s defense against accusations of causing the catastrophe of a South Korean airplane;

the expected stoppage of Chinese arms supplies to Iran, including the „Silkworm” missiles, via the DPRK as well as China’s refusal to increase oil supplies [to the DPRK] and suspending the several years’ long negotiations regarding China’s use of the North Korean port at Chongjin for commercial purposes;

- both parties are interested in improving their mutual relations. That is why Li Peng accepted  Ri Kun-mo’s preliminary invitation to visit the DPRK. Its date will be agreed upon after the current NPC plenary session.
