Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will visit North Korea on May 31 to discuss the situation on the peninsula. It follows Pyongyang’s landmark demolition of its nuclear test site last week.
The Russian top official will meet his North Korean counterpart to discuss bilateral relations and pressing international issues, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
In April, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho visited Moscow, where he held talks with Lavrov. The Russian foreign minister confirmed at the time that he accepted an invitation from Ri to visit Pyongyang.
