A Quick A-z On Speedy Programs In
In recent years, Ri has taken a high-profile role in publicising North Korea's tests of nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles. Late last year, for example, she announced North Korea's test of what it said was a hydrogen bomb, telling viewers it was a "perfect success". With the test of an intercontinental ballistic missile with the range to strike anywhere in the United States, "the state nuclear force" was complete, she gushed. This year, however, Ri's broadcasts have charted the easing of tension. She reported in April on the first summit between North and South Korea in a decade, and then on Trump's meeting with Kim. "The supreme leader cherishes her voice and North Koreans notice it as well, so there is no reason for Kim Jong Un to replace someone who has been called a treasure in North Korea," said Ahn Chan-il, a North Korean defector who now lives in South Korea. "Even if the North Korean regime opens their country for revolution, this announcer will declare that decision." Ri famously wept on air when announcing the death of North Korea's founder Kim Il Sung in 1994. When his son, Kim Jong Il, died in 2011, it was Ri - clad in black funeral clothes and her voice quavering - who delivered the news to North Koreans. Despite officially retiring in 2012, Ri has come back from time to time to make big announcements.

Some New Guidance On Fundamental Criteria For
North Korean, Russian tour operators to hold June talks on expanding ties DPRK eases visa requirements for Russian citizens as further economic cooperation looms North Korean and Russian tour operators plan to hold a meeting in June to discuss opportunities for expanding bilateral cooperation in the field of tourism, the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East announced on Thursday. Russian Deputy Minister for the Development of the Far East Alexander Krutikov announced the plan in a written statement. “The potential for the development of relations in tourism between the countries is high,” the minister said, adding that the North Korean side has set up a new counterpart organization to the Russian tour agencies without providing details. August last year saw the launch of a new Russian travel agency “NKOREAN,” hinting at expanding bilateral cooperation in the field of tourism between the countries. Though the operator of the company remains unclear, its official website features the logos of Russia’s Federal Agency for Tourism and the Korea International Travel Company (KITC). Minister for the Development of the Russian Far East Alexander Galushka has been a vocal champion of Moscow’s desire to expand bilateral cooperation in the field of tourism. The minister has in the past called on the North to ease visa requirements for Russian citizens to improve bilateral relations and boost tourism, saying Moscow’s interest in the DPRK is “very high.” Pyongyang has also informed Moscow of its plans to simplify the visa process for Russian citizens, Galushka said in the same statement on Thursday. The minister said the DPRK’s new policy was a response to last year’s move by Moscow to allow North Koreans to visit Russia’s Far East area using an electronic visa, adding he believes it will “lead to an increase in the tourist flow.” Under Russia’s recent rule change, citizens of 18 countries, including the DPRK, can obtain e-visas through a simplified online procedure. Holders of the e-visa, however, can enter and exit the country only through designated border crossing points in “territory of the free port of Vladivostok.” Minister Galushka said Russia’s State Duma was reviewing extending the e-visa procedure to other airport checkpoints in the Far East region.

He said the e-visa system will be extended to other checkpoints in the regions of Magadan, Yakutsk and Buhta Provideniya in the future.
