MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) supports the policy pursued by Russian President Vladimir Putin amid the anti-Russian campaign and sanctions imposed by the West, DPRK’s Vice-Premier Ro Tu-chol told Russian Deputy Prime Minister and presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev on Tuesday.
"I take this opportunity to once again express our support to the course pursued by Russian President Vladimir Putin in connection with the ongoing anti-Russian campaign and the imposition of unjustified sanctions, the course aimed at advocating Russia’s interests," Ro Tu-chol said.
He noted that he expected to discuss during the meeting the ways of further strengthening cooperation between the two countries, above all, in the Far East region. "After your visit to North Korea last year the issues of expanding economic cooperation between our two countries have been discussed at various levels," he said. "We believe that some progress has been made over the past year."
Trutnev welcomed the North Korean delegation in Moscow and congratulated the guests on the opening of the Year of Friendship between the two countries on Tuesday. "I expect to hear the questions that you would like to discuss," he said.
