High-level North Korean delegation heads to Vladivostok for Eastern Economic Forum

Meetings with Primorye governor, Russian Far East development minister scheduled: embassy

A high-level delegation of North Korean officials flew to Vladivostok on Monday, the Russian Embassy in Pyongyang said, in a visit which will see them take part in the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) and continue ongoing talks with local counterparts on economic cooperation. 

The trip follows a week-long tour of Far East Russian cities by a North Korean foreign ministry delegation last week to discuss trade relations and issues involving DPRK laborers in the run-up to a UN sanctions deadline requiring their expulsion from Russia by this December.
