According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the two top diplomats are also expected to discuss the bilateral cooperation agenda and to sign a plan for 2016-2017 on mutual exchange between the foreign ministries.
Earlier this week, Yun said that Russia was an important partner for Seoul regarding the denuclearization of North Korea and the peaceful unification of the Korean Peninsula.
Russia and North Korea are members of the Six-Party Talks format, which was launched in 2003 as a measure to end North Korea's nuclear weapons program through negotiations involving China, the United States, North Korea and Japan. In 2005, the parties agreed to the verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and that North Korea must abandon all its nuclear programs and relinquish its nuclear weapons.
In 2005, North Korea declared itself a nuclear power, and conducted several nuclear weapon tests, sparking concerns in the international community. Almost four years later, Pyongyang tested additional nuclear weapons and, without warning, walked out of the Six-Party Talks. North Korea's actions have led some to speculate that the country isn't only concerned with defending its borders.
