PYONGYANG, May 15. /TASS/. North Korea’s Foreign Ministry informed Russian diplomats in Pyongyang about the decision to free Elgin yacht, Russian Ambassador in North Korea Alexander Matsegora told TASS on Sunday.
Russian diplomatic mission’s staff is checking information about yacht’s sailing from Kimchaek port to Vladivostok and tries to reach the yacht master by phone, the ambassador said.
At the same time, diplomats continue insisting that the Korean side clarifies reasons of yacht detention.
The Elfin yacht with five crew members onboard was detained by a North Korean coast guard ship in the Sea of Japan some 80 miles away from the port of Kosong on Friday.
The vessel, belonging to the Primorye Sailing Association, was on the way from the South Korean port of Pusan to Vladivostok after an international regatta.
