In this paper, we consider a composite DC optimization problem with a cone-convex system in locally convex Hausdorff topological vector spaces. By using the properties of the epigraph of the conjugate functions, some necessary and sufficient conditions which characterize the strong Fenchel-Lagrange duality and the stable strong Fenchel-Lagrange duality are given. We apply the results obtained to study the minmax optimization problem and $l_1$ penalty problem.
