S. Korea envoy meets N. Korea official


SEOUL: A South Korean envoy attending Russia’s World War II anniversary ceremony briefly met with North Korea’s ceremonial head of state in a rare high-level encounter between two Koreas, a report said on Sunday. Senior lawmaker Yoon Sang-Hyun, who was visiting Moscow on behalf of South Korean President Park Geun-Hye, met Saturday with Kim Yong-Nam, Yonhap news agency said, citing anonymous Seoul officials. But the two only exchanged pleasantries during their encounter after a military parade in Moscow to mark the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany, it said. Kim, the president of the North’s rubber-stamp parliament, traveled to Russia after leader Kim Jong-Un cancelled a planned, much-anticipated visit.
