PYONGYANG, April 18. /TASS/. The Supreme People’s Assembly of North Korea (the republic’s parliament) highly assesses the level of relations with Russia, Russian Supreme Court Chairman Vyacheslav Lebedev, who wound up his two-day visit to the country, told TASS Saturday.
The Russian Supreme Court’s delegation met with chairman of the presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Yong-nam. The Russians handed him a present for DPRK leader Kim Jong-un - a Gzhel handmade tea set.
Lebedev said the head of North Korea’s parliament "stressed the high level and constructive nature of relations with Russia, passing the best wishes to President Vladimir Putin."
He said the meeting took into account the great symbolic significance for the two countries of the year 2015, when the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Victory in the Second World War and the Liberation of Korea from Japanese colonial rule are marked.
Lebedev said that the leaders of the two countries have declared 2015 the Year of Friendship between Russia and the DPRK. "Our countries have great plans to expand bilateral ties, including in the sphere of judicial procedure," he said.
During the visit, the delegation held talks with DPRK Supreme Court Chairman Pak Myong-chol on issues of bilateral cooperation and interaction at international sites.
The delegation laid flowers to the statues of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il on Mansudae Hill and a wreath to the Liberation Monument in Pyongyang. It had been mounted after the Red Army defeated in 1945 Japan’s Kwantung Army on the Korean Peninsula.
