Last week, Sino-Gist covered the Chinese and North Korean media's response to Kim Jong-il's latest visit to China, in which he exchanged views with President Hu Jintao on a number of issues, including the continuing tension between Pyongyang and Seoul (for more information, see this previous post). Since Kim's visit, the English language website of the Korean Central News Agency of the DPRK has published several articles documenting the reaction to the visit, including "Korean People Hail Kim Jong Il's China Visit" (6th September 2010) and "Kim Jong Il's China Visit Hailed" (7th September 2010). Both are available at the KCNA's website under their respective days in the archive, and give a good idea of what North Korea was expecting to achieve through the trip.
