Development of relations between Primorye and North Korea in the field of energy, transport and logistics, culture and sport was discussed at the meeting of the Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea Lee Su Yong and First Vice Governor of Primorye Alexander Kostenko, the press service of the Primorsky Territory Administration reported today.

"In particular, the successful operation of the port of Rajin, where Russian coal is being transshipped, was noted," the message says.

The development of relations in the field of agriculture and labor resources was also discussed.

During his visit to Primorye, Lee Soo Young visited the Far East agricultural enterprise of the Russian Agricultural Academy in the Artyomovsk urban district. A high-tech production of vegetables has been organized here, which also involves specialists from the DPRK.

“We appreciate the workers from the DPRK, they have proved themselves well in Primorye,” A. Kostenko said.

He added that most of the experts from the DPRK in Primorye are engaged in the construction industry.

Li Su Yong said that the DPRK intends to develop cooperation with Primorye in the agrarian sector. A number of projects are currently under consideration. They will also be discussed during the visit to the DPRK of the Russian Minister for Far Eastern Development Alexander Galushka, scheduled for the end of October.

"The experience of cooperation in the agrarian sector, which we saw in Primorye, turned out to be very inspiring," said the head of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, whose words are quoted in the message.

A. Kostenko and Li Su Yong noted the positive experience of training North Korean students in the Far Eastern Federal University and the participation of children from the DPRK in various sports competitions held in Primorye.

The parties stressed that such ties also serve as good preconditions for strengthening economic cooperation of the territories.
