Chinese assist DPRK with birdflu

From Yonhap:

A Chinese delegation of avian influenza experts arrived in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang on Sunday, according to state media there.

The Chinese group visited the statue of former North Korean leader Kim Il-sung in downtown Pyongyang, said the (North) Korean Central Television Broadcasting Station, monitored here, but it did not report the purpose of the group’s visit.

The Chinese government has donated equipment and material to North Korea to conduct an examination for bird flu, and on Wednesday signed an agreement with Pyongyang for cooperation regarding examination and possible quarantine measures.

North Korea has not reported a case of bird flu ever since an outbreak earlier last year was brought under control.
