North Korean defense minister en route to Moscow for security conference: KCNA

Ministry of Defense-sponsored event likely to overlap with this week's DPRK-Russia summit

North Korea's Minister of the People's Armed Forces departed Pyongyang on Monday to take part in the 8th Moscow Conference on International Security, state media reported, in a visit likely to overlap with an expected DPRK-Russia summit in the country's Far East this week.

No Kwang Chol -- who most recently appeared alongside North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a test of new “tactical guided weapon” last Wednesday -- is accompanied by a delegation of officials, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.
