North Korean Visit

MOSCOW -- Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov will travel to North Korea early next year to revise a 30-year-old cooperation agreement to rule out a military alliance, Itar-Tass said Tuesday.

Ivanov was set to visit North Korea in November, but the trip was put off "for purely internal Russian reasons,'' Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin, according to Itar-Tass.
