PYONGYANG, September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Lee Su-young, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea /DPRK/, will pay an official goodwill visit to Iran.
Expert opinion is that a marked increase in the DPRK's foreign policy has been observed of late. A certain progress has begun to show at talks on normalizing relations between Pyongyang and Tokyo. Lee Su-young may also take part in the proceedings of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Pyongyang's high-ranking diplomats, among them the Foreign Minister, have made several trips to Africa, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian countries.
