GENEVA, January 13. /TASS/. Pyongyang’s permanent mission to the UN in Geneva confirmed on Wednesday that organizers of the World Economic Forum have revoked the invitation to the North Korean delegation for the conference in Davos on January 20-23.
Speaking on whether North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Su-yong will take part in the WEF conference in Davos, Switzerland, a representative of the diplomatic mission said: "He planned to participate, but unfortunately they [forum’s organizers] revoked the invitation."
Local media said citing the organizers that the invitation for North Korea was sent in autumn last year due to "positive signals coming from the country." However, due to North Korea’s nuclear test on January 6 the delegation will face "possible additional sanctions."
The organizers said they cannot maintain the invitation issued last year.
