Two Russian diplomats in North Korea freed after 30-day quarantine

Natalya Noskova and Vadim Tetin arrived in the DPRK on March 9, brought diplomatic mail and medicine into the country

Correction at 18:10 KST: A previous version of this article stated that two diplomats arrived in the DPRK on March 8, when in fact they arrived on March 9. It has been amended to reflect that fact.

Two Russian diplomats were on Wednesday released from a "difficult" 30 days in quarantine in the North Korean city of Pyongsong, the country's embassy said on Thursday.
