SEOUL, Jan. 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's key wire service Yonhap News Agency will release the Korean translation of news articles from the online edition of People's Daily, one of China's largest media companies, starting Monday.

Yonhap will post five People's Daily Online articles translated into Korean every day in the "world news" category of its website while the Chinese portal will do the same for Chinese-language articles from Yonhap.

In addition, the two companies will post each other's banner ads on their homepages so users can easily move between the two services by simply clicking on the banner.

In September, Yonhap signed a memorandum of understanding with the People's Daily during a forum hosted by the Chinese daily in Beijing for exchanges of news articles between the two sides.

People's Daily is the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party, published worldwide with a circulation of 13 to 14 million. Its Internet edition boasts a daily average of 400 million to 700 million page views.
