    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.

    Could this lead to coolness of russia-north korean relations?

    Russia begins deportation of North Korean workers — ambassador

    Russian Far East has about 12,000 workers from North Korea

    UN, February 7. /TASS/. Russia has started to deport North Korean workers in line with UN Security Council resolution adopted last December, Russia’s ambassador to North Korea, Alexander Matsegora, told Russian journalists in New York.

    "Many governors have started to deport Koreans in order to report early implementation [of the resolution]," he said, adding that the move demonstrates Russia’s commitment to implementation of UN Security Council decisions.

    Matsegora said the move will have serious impact on the Russian economy, especially in the Far East, which had about 12,000 workers from North Korea.

    "This will deal a blow to the Russian economy, a serious blow, especially to the Far East," he said.

    The diplomat said that the Russian authorities do not forcefully deport North Koreans who do not want to return back. "We don’t return anyone to North Korea by force. We have never did," he said.

    On December 22, the United Nations Security Council has further toughened sanctions against North Korea following a ballistic missile test on November 29. The resolution imposes a ban on supplies of crude oil and oil products and insists all countries expel North Korean labor migrants. The move is intended to deprive Pyongyang of sources to finance its nuclear and ballistic programs.
