CHANGCHUN, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- An air route linking the city of Yanji in northeast China's Jilin Province and Daegu in the Republic of Korea (ROK) will resume operations on Aug. 20, according to the government of Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture.
China will continue to pursue development and progress to meet the desire of its people and make new, even greater contributions to mankind, he said.
He added that with joint efforts of China and ASEAN, two-way trade and investment grew in the first half of this year, and fast-track lanes for personnel and logistics exchanges have been established to facilitate resumption of work and production, as well as the smooth operation of industrial and supply chains.

China and ASEAN countries, including the Philippines, are currently focusing on the fight against COVID-19 and resuming economic activities, which call for solidarity, coordination, peace and stability, Wang said.
Maggiorelli said he agreed with the Chinese foreign minister that it was futile for the United States to try and interfere in China's internal affairs, saying it underestimated the strong bond between the Chinese people and the ruling Communist Party of China.
"These have been the sources of China's economic boom and Cambodia is using China as a role model in our economic development as well," he said.
National security legislation underpins the very survival of any country, and it is a common legal practice of all countries, Wang said.
As the world's largest developing country and a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China will stay committed to peaceful development and to pursuing an opening-up strategy of mutual benefit, Wang stressed.
Sorasak said the agreement means a lot to Cambodia's economy as it gives greater market access to the country's products.
"This very huge market access enables Cambodia to diversify its products and markets and reduce over-reliance on a few trading partners, i.e., Europe, U.S., and Canada, who traditionally trade with Cambodia on a concessional basis such as Everything But Arms (EBA), Generalized System of Preferences (GSP)," he said.
