According to Peskov, Choe Ryong Hae has brought a message from the North Korean leader.
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.
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.
