North Korea is true declaration of friendship with Russia

North Korea reaffirmed its commitment to a joint declaration of friendship, signed with Russia in July 2000, which calls for good neighborly relations and cooperation, according to news agency RUSCOR.

The newspaper Rodong Sinmun, the organ of the ruling Labor Party of Korea, writes that Pyongyang will continue to respect the letter of the declaration signed at the summit in Pyongyang by the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“There is a stable desire for high-level negotiations,” notes Rodong Sinmun, adding that it is the desire of the two peoples to have closer ties. The newspaper article, which reflects the position of the leadership of North Korea, came out after the North held an official ceremony for the opening of berthing facilities in Rajin, the country's northeastern port city, near the border with Russia.
