China’s President Hu Jintao on Friday met the powerful uncle of North Korea’s young leader Kim Jong-un, in a clear show of support for the impoverished ally as it takes tentative steps to rebuild its shattered economy.
The uncle, Jang song-thaek, is seen as a driving force for reforms which the isolated and destitute North is believed to be trying and for which it desperately needs Chinese backing.
“For many years, Comrade Jang Song-thaek has done a great deal of work to develop neighborly friendship between China and North Korea,” Hu said at their meeting, according to Chinese radio.
