North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has paid tribute to the millions of Chinese troops who fought against a U.S.-led coalition and saved his country from defeat in the Korean War.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency reported Thursday that Kim visited the martyrs of the Chinese People's Volunteers in Hoechang County, South Pyongan Province, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the entry of Chinese forces in the 1950-53 war.

Kim was quoted as calling their involvement "a historic contribution to the great victory."

China is North Korea's longtime ally and economic benefactor.

Although ties have fluctuated over the years due to Pyongyang's growing nuclear ambitions, both sides have moved to strengthen their alliance, especially as negotiations between North Korea and the U.S. are at a standstill.

The two Koreas remain technically at war as fighting ended with an armistice in 1953 that was never replaced by a peace treaty.
