    Source: Russian military delegation in Pyongyang to start talks with North Korean command

    It is not ruled out that the sides will discuss the possibility of signing an agreement on prevention of dangerous military activities

    PYONGYANG, November 10. /TASS/. A Russian military delegation that arrived in Pyongyang on Monday will start talks with the command of the Korean People’s Army, an informed Russian source said on Tuesday.

    The Russian military delegation, which is headed by First Deputy Chief of Russia’s General Staff Nikolay Bogdanovsky, will stay in North Korea until November 13. The talks with the command of the Korean People’s Army will start on Wednesday, the source said, without specifying the subject matter of negotiations.

    It is not ruled out that the sides will discuss the possibility of signing an agreement on prevention of dangerous military activities.

    This issue was discussed at a meeting held in June this year in Moscow between Russia’s State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin and Chairman of North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly Choe Thae-bok. The sides came to the conclusion that the document "is in a quite high degree of readiness" and "may be signed before the end of this year."

    A draft agreement between Russia and North Korea on the prevention of dangerous military activities has already been approved by the Russian government.

    N. Korea, Russia Sign Energy Cooperation Pact
    2015-12-12

    North Korean media say that the North and Russia have signed an agreement to cooperate on supplying power.

    The North's Korean Central Television said the signing ceremony Friday at the People's Palace of Culture in Pyongyang was attended by the North's minister of electric power industry and Russia's vice energy minister.

    The agreement is seen as the legal foundation for Russia to provide electricity to the North's Rason special economic zone.

    The two countries are currently carrying out a project to build power transmission lines connecting the North Korean city of Rason and Russia's Maritime Province. The power lines will be used for power plants in the Maritime Province to supply power to North Korea.
