China said that North Korea has been at the forefront of its international foreign aid efforts which it has been carrying out for the past 60 years.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, China's Vice Commerce Minister Fu Ziying spoke in detail for the first time about the aid his country has given to the North.
He said that China helped to build Pyongyang's public infrastructure such as its subway system, but he emphasized that no cash aid has been given.
Beijing issued a white paper last week that outlines its foreign aid policy to Africa and Asia.
