SEOUL, January 22. /TASS/. A decision has not been taken so far that South Korean President Park Geun-hye will pay a visit to Moscow on May 9 for celebrations commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, the presidential spokesperson said on Thursday.
“The presidential schedule for this May has not been drafted yet and she looks to all the alternatives,” he said.
The South Korean presidential administration has made this statement after reports said that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had accepted an invitation to visit Moscow to attend a May ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in WWII and would make his first visit since coming into office in 2011.
On Wednesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference that invitations for commemorate the 70th Victory anniversary in Moscow on May 9, 2015 had been sent “to heads of lots of foreign states, including the Commonwealth of Independent States /CIS/, BRICS, Shanghai Co-operation Organisation, European Union, member states of the anti-Hitler coalition, heads of international and regional organisations.”
Lavrov said “around twenty top state officials confirmed their decision to attend the event.”
“There is still enough time ahead and confirmations of participating in the event continue to come,” he said.
Park Geun-hye received the invitation, Yonhap news agency said adding it could not rule out a possibility of two Korean leaders’ meeting in Moscow.
