"This year is the 70th anniversary of establishing contacts between the two sides. So I think we are planning to exchange many delegations in the fields of politics, economy and culture. To promote understanding and to exchange views on the international problems between the two sides. We are ready," Jong said at the 128th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
He noted that there had not been any official contacts yet and stressed a need to exchange delegations, especially to step up parliamentary contacts.
Diplomatic relations between North Korea and the Soviet Union were established in October 1948 soon after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) was proclaimed.
