MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin received North Korean leader  Kim Jong-un’s special envoy, a high-ranking member of the ruling Workers' Party, Choe Ryong Hae, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

On Monday, a source in the Russia foreign ministry told TASS that the North Korean envoy would discuss a traditional range of topics. “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.”

Choe Ryong Hae arrived in Russia on Monday, November 17 for a seven-day visit. Apart from Moscow, he plans to visit Russia’s Far Eastern cities of Khabarovsk and Vladivostok.
