'Kim Jong-un will send special envoy to Russia'

  • North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is sending special envoy Choe Ryong-hae to Russia.  

    The North Korean state media, which reported this, did not state the agenda of the visit.

    It was also not immediately clear when Choe Ryong-hae, a senior Communist party figure, would go.

    Russia, a former key ally to the North, supplied it weapons technology and aid.

    More recently, China has started to distance itself from the North Korean regime after the latter conducted nuclear tests.
