12 June, Wellington – New Zealand is to receive a high level delegation of officials from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea later this week. The delegation will comprise of officials led by Mr. Kim Myong Gil – Director-General of Asia and Oceanic Countries at DPR-Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Their visit to New Zealand follows meetings held with regional officials in Australia and Fiji, and their agenda will include a courtesy call on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).

DPR-Korea has been increasing exchanges with ASEAN member states recently: A delegation led by Kim Yong Il, a secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, is currently visiting Laos, Vietnam and Burma. Last month, No. 2 leader, President Kim Yong-Nam, Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly, DPR-Korea’s Parliament, visited Singapore and Indonesia on a goodwill visit aimed at increasing trade and direct investment.

DPR-Korea has no diplomatic mission in the South Pacific after closing its Canberra office in 2008 for financial reasons.
