    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.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday became the first high-ranking Russian official who met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in Pyongyang. During the visit shortly before the planned meeting between the leaders of the United States and North Korea, Lavrov called on Washington and Pyongyang to bear responsibility for the situation. According to Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Moscow opposes forceful pressure on North Korea and proceeds from the fact that the solution to the nuclear problem cannot be completed until the sanctions against North Korea are lifted.

    If America is so keen to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula how many nukes is it prepared to give up and how many of its almost 40K troops will it remove from South Korea let alone Japan...

    All America really wants is to move its bases from South Korea to North Korea so they can be closer to Russia and China... South Korea should just kick the US out and talk to South Korea and China and Russia... countries directly related to the issues.

    Moscow refutes allegations about Russia violating UNSC resolution on North Korea

    The resolution introduced a ban for providing work permits to North Korean citizens

    KOKTEBEL /Crimea/, October 10. /TASS/. Allegations stating that North Korean citizens are working in Russia illegally and in violation of UN Security Council resolutions are baseless, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated during Wednesday’s press briefing.

    According to her, recently, officials from several countries have accused Russia of violating the sanctions introduced by the UN Security Council. "Such allegations are completely baseless. All workers from North Korea without exception are on Russian territory under contracts of employment signed before September 11, 2017, as paragraph 17 of UN Resolution 2375 stipulates," the diplomat stressed. "They can continue working until December 22, 2019."

    In September of last year, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2375 in response to another nuclear test carried out by Pyongyang on September 3, 2017. The resolution introduced a ban for providing work permits to North Korean citizens.

    Being closer only increases tensions, makes them more vulnerable & doesn't add to their utility.

    I totally agree with that assessment, but it is also what they are doing in Europe regarding US bases in former soviet republics and eastern europe etc etc.

    True, & it's their mistake; but there, they use existing former East B
    Block bases to deploy BMD sites, planes, tanks, troops & stock supplies. Poland is asking for Fort Trump but may not get it.
    Time will tell!

    Which tells you exactly who is the aggressor in europe... the soviets withdrew their forces from eastern europe back to the soviet union... and in response NATO advanced into eastern europe and right into former soviet states, but they keep telling Russia it is being aggressive and to calm down... why is Russia building up its conventional and nuclear military power... why would you need to ask?

    But obviously having US troops on the Ukrainian and Georgian border with Russia promotes peace and democracy and stability in the region...

    These guys are idiots... clearly being passive has not helped so Russia now needs to state clearly that... OK... the US has ripped up the INF treaty, so what we are going to do is build intermediate range ballistic and cruise missiles and we are going to base them only on our (Russian) territory and we are going to fit them with the biggest and most powerful and most dirty nuclear warheads we can develop and fit in them and we will give you a 1 year grace period and then we will point them at US bases in Europe and also in NATO bases in places where foreign troops are located in european states... so for instance a UK fighter aircraft unit operating from Bulgaria will be targeted, and for every unit of foreign troops in each country the capital city of that country will also be targeted and the country of origin will get missiles pointed at them too.

    So for instance a German unit in Latvia will result in the unit being targeted, the capital city of Latvia being targeted and Berlin being targeted with IRBMs armed with 5-10MT warhead nukes.

    Nuclear blackmail?

    Yup.

    I mean how can you deny the fact that US forces in former eastern block bases with supplies and ABM systems is not directed at Russia... Russia needs to deliver the message that they have been there and done that and are not interested in occupying any eastern european country again... it is simply not worth the agro, so in future if the Russians do have to interfere in the new NATO members it will be because they are part of a military organisation that is opposed to Russias existence so any action Russia takes against NATO will be extermination, not occupation. NATO countries attacked by Russia will be obliterated and irradiated and not assimilated... so there is nothing to fear unless you mean to threaten Russia in which case goodbye.

    Those troops r in W/S Ukraine & W/C Georgia, & they'll stay away from the borders as there r plenty of local cannon fodder. They r using those countries against Russia the same way Russia is using Donbass, S. Ossetia & Abkhazia against them in response.

    And those countries border Russia. US did not waste time in expanding their own "borders" to Russia.

    Ethnic Chinese never lived in far east. They are only recently. There is actually a common mistake within locals (Russians) on their understanding of the people ethnic groups living there. A large part of the asians living there are of Korean Decent in the far east. Buryats are more west.

    Yeah, I don't think hanging back from the border will protect them if anything actually kicks off... if the locals are stupid enough to cross the border by force the locals are more than capable of dealing with them, but I would expect the Russians would also try to prevent any attempts by Tiblisi or Kiev at genocide...

    They r using those countries against Russia the same way Russia is using Donbass, S. Ossetia & Abkhazia against them in response.

    Would be interested to see a proper explanation of that claim... how exactly are Russia using Kievs and Tiblisis violent attacks on what they claim to be their own people against Americas problem or even their business.

    I think it is time Russia responded in kind... full on interference in US elections... I would reccommend to Putin to endorse a candidate in teh US election when it comes down to the final two candidates... it will be hilarious to see each side blame the other as being Putins stooge... obviously the person endorsed will claim Putin is smart and this is reverse psychology so you should actually vote for him or her because Putin is a liar... and of course their opponent will claim this is evidence that their opponent is supported by Putin so you can't vote for them... it would be hilarious.

    The funny thing will be he wont give a shit who wins they are all censored anyway.

    Regarding that info from wikipedia about history, I wouldn't believe it for a second... the west has a history of bending the truth when it suits them... just look at their track record in the Middle East or even Europe...
