SEOUL - North Korea sent a congratulatory message to China’s 19th Congress of its Communist Party on Wednesday, amid increasingly frayed relationships between the traditional allies, as China tightens sanctions over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

The central committee of the North's ruling Workers' Party of Korea said that China has made "great progress in accomplishing the cause of building socialism with Chinese characteristics" under the correct guidance of the Communist Party of China.
