South Korea's Park to skip Russia World War Two event that North's Kim will attend

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Park Geun-hye will not attend an event in Moscow to mark the end of World War Two in Europe and instead send an envoy, an official said on Monday, dashing the possibility for a rare summit with the leader of North Korea.

Russia has said the North's Kim Jong Un would attend the May 9 celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of the war's end, which would be his first trip overseas since taking power in 2011 after the death of his father.
