PYONGYANG, November 10. /TASS/. A Russian military delegation that arrived in Pyongyang on Monday will start talks with the command of the Korean People’s Army, an informed Russian source said on Tuesday.
The Russian military delegation, which is headed by First Deputy Chief of Russia’s General Staff Nikolay Bogdanovsky, will stay in North Korea until November 13. The talks with the command of the Korean People’s Army will start on Wednesday, the source said, without specifying the subject matter of negotiations.
It is not ruled out that the sides will discuss the possibility of signing an agreement on prevention of dangerous military activities.
This issue was discussed at a meeting held in June this year in Moscow between Russia’s State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin and Chairman of North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly Choe Thae-bok. The sides came to the conclusion that the document "is in a quite high degree of readiness" and "may be signed before the end of this year."
A draft agreement between Russia and North Korea on the prevention of dangerous military activities has already been approved by the Russian government.
