Col. General Kim Hyong Ryong, Vice-Minister of the DPRK People’s Armed Forces visited the Beijing Xiangshan Forum

During this meeting Kim Hyong Ryong discussed the willingness of North Korea to improve its relations with South Korea. Surprisingly, he also met the head of the South Korean delegation So Ju-sok (the chief of unification and foreign and security policy in the Blue House – aka Cheong Wa Dae).

Both evaluated the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and the implementation of the summit declaration and confirmed the mutual positions of both sides regarding the rapid implementation of the military agreement. The Defense Ministry said, « I also agreed with each other that I would meet them in the future. »

Initially, the Defense Ministry said it did not plan to hold official meetings with North Korean officials attending the forum. The meeting between the two seems to have been made on-site.
