The State Duma of the Russian Federation is preparing a delegation for a trip to North Korea

The delegation of the Russian State Duma is going to visit the DPRK at the invitation of this country, Interfax reported on Thursday referring to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.

“Such a visit is being prepared through our“ friendship group ”- in relations with the DPRK parliament. An invitation from Pyongyang to the Duma has been received, ”the agency quoted the speaker. As the speaker specified, he instructed the international affairs committee to submit proposals on the dates of this trip to the Council of the Duma, as well as on the composition of the delegation.

Deputies who are members of the DPRK Parliamentary Relations Group argue that it is highly likely that a trip will be organized before the end of the year. For this, the decision to send a delegation must officially go through the Council of the Duma. Now the relevant materials for the adoption of the Council are in the work, explained the agency in the lower chamber.

The parliamentary group for relations with the DPRK parliament includes 13 representatives of all Duma factions. The group is coordinated by a member of the Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration, and Relations with Compatriots Kazbek Taisayev (KPRF). In early October, a delegation of three State Duma deputies from the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia on a party line visited Pyongyang and, as the Russian embassy in the DPRK reported then, Russian parliamentarians were received at a high level.
