North Korean foreign minister headed to Sweden for talks

Ri Yong Ho to meet local counterpart, discuss Stockholm's "consular responsibilities" in DPRK

Correction at 2145 KST: A previous version of this article suggested that Choe Kang Il would also be heading to Sweden - that remains unclear, and it has been amended to reflect that fact.

North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho is on his way to Sweden for a two-day trip, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs announced on Thursday.
