President of the People’s Republic of China 习近平 (Xí Jìnpíng) met Kim Jong-un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), in 大连 (Dàlián), northeast China’s 辽宁省 (Liáoníng province), on May 7–8.
As usual, Kim Jong-un was accompanied by her younger sister Kim Yo-jong, Director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Workers’ Party of Korea, who attended all the talks related to China–North Korea relations as well as other issues of mutual concern. Photos © Jajusibo.
But when the host offered a welcoming toast to begin a ceremonial banquet, and the guest lifted a chalice of red wine in her hand, then suddenly, the rest was silence. Photos © Jajusibo.
