    According to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov, the potential visit of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to Russia will be a logical continuation of a recently noticeably activated Russian-North Korean political dialogue.

    MOSCOW, January 28 (Sputnik) — The potential visit of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to Russia for the 70th anniversary of World War II will continue an activated dialogue between Moscow and Pyongyang, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov told RIA Novosti Wednesday.

    "If such visit takes place, it would be a logical continuation of a recently noticeably activated Russian-North Korean political dialogue, would contribute to the implementation of agreements reached by the parties in the economic field," Morgulov said.

    Sustaining a relationship with North Korea on all levels is in the interests of both Moscow and Pyongyang, and contributes to the peace on the Korean peninsula, as well as northeast Asia, according to Moscow, Morgulov stressed.

    Last December, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov stated that the country sent an invitation to Kim Jong Un to partake in the celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. According to Ushakov, there were signals that the North Korean leader was coming to Moscow to take part in the Victory Day celebrations.
