Kim Yong Nam meets South Korean envoy in Moscow

MoU says discussions between two envoys not significant for inter-Korean ties

North Korea’s nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam met with South Korean presidential envoy Yoon Sang-hyun in Moscow during the Victory Day celebrations held May 8-10.

While meetings between the two were not previously scheduled the pair met several times. However, South Korea’s Ministry of Unification (MoU) said the impromptu exchanges did not represent progress in inter-Korean relations.
