BEIJING Oct. 13 -- The Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian presided over the Regular Press Conference on October 12, 2020, and responded to the question about recent military parade conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in celebrating the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea(WPK).
Zhao expressed that it is not something unusual for many countries around the world to hold military parades on important occasions. As a friendly neighbor to the DPRK, China congratulates the Workers' Party of Korea on its 75th founding anniversary and wishes that the DPRK will scale new heights in all its causes under the leadership of Chairman Kim Jong Un and the WPK.
China's position on the Korean Peninsula issue is consistent and clear. “We stand ready to work with all relevant parties to continue to push for a political settlement of the Peninsula issue and enduring stability on the Korean Peninsula”, Zhao said.
