North Korea to Send Special Envoy to Russia

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will send a special envoy to Russia next week, both countries announced Friday, in a trip expected to focus on how to boost ties at a time when his country faces deepening diplomatic isolation.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency said Choe Ryong Hae will visit Russia soon, but didn't specify the dates or the exact purpose of the trip. Russia's Foreign Ministry later said Choe would visit Nov. 17-24.
