N.Korea, China Strike Oil Development Deal – Chosunilbo

From Digital Chosunilbo:

agreed with China over the weekend to jointly exploit offshore oilfields. The deal was signed after a meeting in Beijing and puts maritime disputes between the two countries to rest. Energy experts in China say the deal comes as no surprise as the two countries have already signed a series of deals for Chinese-funded projects.

The two countries are to explore and develop fields in the Yellow Sea. China's Vice Premier Zeng Peiyan signed the agreement with North Korea's Deputy Premier Ro Tu-chol, whose four-day visit to Beijing ends Tuesday. Neither Chinese nor North Korean news reports offered details of the agreement. The two countries have traditionally been strong allies.
