North Korea's new leader hosted a dinner in Pyongyang for senior political officials visiting from China, state media said Friday, in what marked Kim Jong-Un's diplomatic debut and a sign that he is turning his attention to foreign affairs.
Kim talked with a Chinese delegation led by Wang Jiarui, head of the Communist Party's international affairs office, and then hosted a dinner, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
Kim told Wang that the North Korean government is focused on boosting the economy, according to China's official Xinhua News Agency.
The meeting marks Kim's first official diplomatic foray since he took over as leader following the December death of his father, Kim Jong-Il.
Kim Jong-Un, who is believed to be 29, has been swift in moving to build loyalty among North Korea's 24 million people and to establish control over key institutions such as the military and ruling Workers' Party.
He also has been quick to show his rule will differ in style from that of his father, who kept his personal life out of the media.
