Minister of State for external affairs General VK Singh on Wednesday became the first Indian minister in twenty years to visit North Korea, news agencies reported. Singh went to North Korea via China and his presence there comes just ahead of a possible meeting between Kim and United States of America President Donald Trump. The Ministry of External Affairs has remained tight-lipped on the visit and not much details are available as of now. The talks, however, are expected to focus largely on bilateral ties and North Korea’s nuclear programme. Reports said Singh travelled to China and then to Pyongyang. He is expected to hold talks with his North Korean counterpart but a meeting with leader Kim Jong-un is not confirmed as yet.
