MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s special envoy Choe Ryong Hae, a high-ranking member of the ruling Workers' Party, has arrived on a seven-day visit to Russia. His plane landed on Monday at a Moscow airport.
This is a third visit by a top-ranking North Korean official to Moscow over this year. In February, President of the Supreme People’s Assembly Presidium Kim Yong Nam visited Moscow and in October, North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong paid a visit to Russia after a four-year break.
The North Korean envoy “will discuss a traditional range of topics,” a source in the Russia foreign ministry told TASS. “The agenda has not been agreed in detail, but there is a traditional range of topics, such as bilateral relations, international problems, naturally, with a focus on nuclear-related topics.”
Meanwhile, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that three blocks of issues would be raised at talks with the North Korean envoy. “First, it is the nuclear program, to be more precise, prospects of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” he said. “Second, it is security in northeastern Asia in a broader context. There are a lot of problems there.”
“Apart from that, in focus there will be bilateral relations between Moscow and Pyongyang, which, as far as I understand, have had certain dynamics in the recent time,” the Russian diplomat added.
