North Korea delegation in China for talks: Report

SEOUL – A North Korean diplomatic delegation is visiting China for talks on strengthening cooperation, North Korean state media said on Dec 16, as Pyongyang slowly opens its borders and resumes trade with its neighbours after the Covid-19 pandemic.

North Korean Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Pak Myong Ho and Chinese counterpart Sun Weidong discussed boosting strategic cooperation and bilateral relations on Dec 15, KCNA said in a statement, without giving details.

References to North Korean officials going to China to discuss political issues publicly have been rare since January 2020, when North Korea closed its borders to curb the spread of Covid-19.
