Moscow. The possible visit of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the 70th Victory Day anniversary in Moscow is a logical continuation in the noticeably intensifying Russian-Korean dialogue, deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Igor Morgulov commented on Wednesday.

“If the visit occurs, this, in my opinion, would be a logical continuation of the noticeably intensifying Russian-Korean political dialogue and would help to achieve in practice what our countries have negotiated in the economic sphere”, Morgulov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Kim Jong-un was invited to attend the 70th anniversary of Russia’s victory in World War II, locally known as the Great Patriotic War. Russian Presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov recently announced North Korea’s positive response to the invitation.

Morgulov also stressed the need to interact at all levels with the North Korean side, stating that such contacts are “in the interest of both countries and serve to improve peace on the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia as a whole”.

He also elaborated on current economic relations as North Korea did not send a request humanitarian aid for this year. “It is important to note that when we take these decisions, we never pose political conditions…but take them solely on the basis of humanitarian concerns…This year we have not received a request for aid.” Morgulov added that Russian aid to North Korea in 2014 consisted of 50,000 tonnes of grain and 50 fire trucks.
