Top China, NKorea Generals Meet        08/18 09:41

   Top military leaders from North Korea and China have recommitted themselves 
to strengthened exchanges between their armed forces during a meeting in 
Beijing.

   BEIJING (AP) -- Top military leaders from North Korea and China have 
recommitted themselves to strengthened exchanges between their armed forces 
during a meeting in Beijing.

   The meeting Saturday came as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised 
another test-firing of an unspecified new weapon, seen as an attempt to 
pressure Washington and Seoul over nuclear negotiations and joint military 
exercises.

   The official Xinhua News agency says Zhang Youxia, the vice chairman of the 
Central Military Commission, met Kim Su Kil, director of the General Political 
Bureau of the Korean People's Army.

   Zhang said China's military wanted closer communication to "promote 
cooperation and mutual support, so as to contribute to the consolidation and 
development of bilateral relations and regional peace and stability."

   China is North Korea's most important ally.
