Reported Russian offer to build power plant in DPRK is “fiction,” says ambassador
Comments follow North Korean-Russian talks in Moscow on Tuesday

Russian ambassador to North Korea Alexander Matsegora on Wednesday denied a recent report that his country was prepared to build a nuclear power plant in DPRK as part of the denuclearization process.

In an interview with Russia's state-owned outlet TASS, Matsegora said he was fully briefed on the bilateral relations and that reports, initially carried by the Washington Post, were false.
