I am confident the two countries will work closely to cultivate a climate of trust, transparency and consensus in order to promote the respect for international rules and norms in the advancement of peaceful resolution of conflicts and increased cooperation in enhancing global peace and security, fight against terrorism and tackling climate change among other global issues of mutual interest.
I look forward to working closely with you and your Government to further strengthen our relations for the mutual benefit of our countries and people.
I wish Your Excellency good health, success and prosperity for the people of the DPRK.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
