PYONGYANG, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian side has applied to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in a request for materials necessary for forthcoming fisheries by Russian fishing boats in DPRK's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) before February 1, next year, Sergei Simakov, head of the Federal Agency for Fishery (FAF) department for international cooperation, told Itar-Tass in an interview on Friday.
He led a Russian delegation to the 27th session of the Russia-Korea mixed commission on cooperation in the field of fisheries. The session ended here on Thursday. The Russian side, Simakov said, expects getting data on exact fishing grounds in the DPRK's EEZ, and instructions on a handover of reports so as to "avoid possible complaints on the part of Korean border-guarding and fishery authorities".
In response to a question whether Russian fishing-industry companies will be interested in fisheries in the DPRK's waters, Simakov said it is essential preliminarily to establish "rules of the game and create a principle of reciprocity in this respect". The FAF will refer the data provided by DPRK authorities to Russia's fishing unions. Following that, they themselves will determine advisability of the use of quotas, provided for Russia by the North Korean side every year for the catch of biological marine resources, Simakov said. "Those quotas are not currently used by Russia," he pointed out.
