North Korea's Kim congratulates China's Xi on re-election as president

The premier traditionally is China's top economic official, but Xi, the country's most dominant leader since Mao Zedong, has stripped Li of numerous post's most prominent duties by appointing himself to lead party bodies that oversee economic reform and state industry.

There was never really any doubt that the "rubber-stamp" parliament would not re-elected Mr Xi as president on Saturday, especially following the constitutional amendment a week earlier which lifted presidential term limits, allowing him to stay on indefinitely. Xi chairs both the state and the party's military commission.

"The voyage of a great country can not do without a helmsman", the paper wrote.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said he hoped under Xi's leadership, China realises the Chinese dream as soon as possible and makes greater contribution to peace and development in Northeast Asia and the world at large.
