North Korean Diplomats to Travel to Washington
The U.S. State Department has given two North Korean diplomats permission to travel to Washington for a conference about peace on the Korean peninsula.
A State Department spokeswoman made the announcement Saturday that North Korea's ambassadors to the United Nations, Pak Gil Yon and Han Song-ryol, have been given permission to make the trip next week.
They will attend the Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Forum on Tuesday.
The United States does not have diplomatic relations with North Korea. North Korea's U.N. ambassadors must have permission from Washington to travel farther than 40 kilometers away from U.N. headquarters in New York City.
