North Korea's powerful politburo discusses follow-up steps to Kim's Russia visit
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un discussed follow-up measures to his recent visit to Russia during the first formal meeting of the ruling Workers' Party's
powerful politburo since his return, state media KCNA said on Friday.
Kim returned home from a weeklong trip to Russia last week in which he and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to boost military and economic cooperation.
On Wednesday, Kim briefed the party central committee's powerful politburo on his visit, and participants explored ways to "practically and comprehensively" implement its results and "constructive," long-term measures for developing relations with Russia, KCNA said.
"He stressed the need to strengthen close contacts and cooperation among relevant fields of the two countries to expand and develop cooperation in every field in an all-round way," it said.
