TOKYO, June 3 (Itar-Tass) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ponders over a mission of his personal special envoy in Russia in the first half of this month for consultations over the situation on the Korean Peninsula. This special envoy can be recently appointed Chief of the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army Kim Kyok-sik, the Seoul newspaper Kyunghyang Sinmun newspaper reported on Monday.
The chief of the General Staff is a prominent official in the North Korean state hierarchy. His status is higher than that of the minister of people’s armed forces, the newspaper reported.
Last May, the North Korean leader sent head of the General Political Department of the Korean People’s Army Vice-Marshal Choe Ryong Hae as a special envoy in Beijing. He was received by the Chinese leadership, including President Xi Jinping. At these negotiations the North Korean special envoy was reported to state that Pyongyang is ready to take a positive attitude to the resumption of the six-party talks suspended since the autumn of 2008. The six-party talks were held over the North Korean nuclear program also involving China, Russia, the United States and Japan.
