Pyongyang, June 8: Officials from Russia and North Korea have met on Friday, during which they discussed ways to strengthen the relationship and deepen bilateral cooperation on wide fields of trade and economy, as per Pyongyang state-run media outlets.

According to ANI news reports, Kim Yong-jae, North Korean minister for external economic affairs, has led a team of delegation and the Russian team of the delegation was led by Alexander Kozlov, Russian minister for external economic affairs, according to Yonhap News Agency reports citing N Korean state-run KCNA media.

The KCNA reported, “The talks discussed matters of further revitalizing the work of DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea)-Russia Intergovernmental Committee for Cooperation in Trade, Economy, Science and Technology and putting the equally-beneficial economic and trade relations between the two countries on a higher stage.”

The development came as the two sides were seeking to bolster cooperation and bilateral relations in trade and economy.

In April, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has paid his first official visit to Russia since he assumed the office in 2011. During his visit, Kim met with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Meanwhile, Pyongyang has been making efforts to expand its diplomatic ties with its neighbouring nation such as Russia and China in the midst of global sanction imposed on N Korea.

The sanctions have been imposed on Pyongyang due to no progress during the second summit between Kim and US President in Hanoi, Vietnam, because of large-scale differences between two leaders as Kim stressed over US sanction relief, where Trump focused over Kim’s last year commitment of full denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The Russian embassy in Pyongyang has, earlier this week, informed about 3,900 tons of wheat, as humanitarian assistance, was provided to the North Koreans via a foreign agency in order to help the nation to overcome its crisis.
