North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su-yong arrived in Havana, Cuba on Sunday, the official [North] Korean Central News Agency reported Monday.
KCNA did not mention the purpose of his visit, but pundits note that Ri's visit comes as South Korea is in talks with Cuba to establish diplomatic relations.
Ri left Pyongyang on Feb. 21 to visit Mongolia and attend a session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva before moving on to Belarus and Russia.
In Moscow he met with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
Pyongyang and Havana have maintained close ties since 1960.
