    A top North Korean diplomat arrived in Moscow on Tuesday, to attend a three-day conference on nuclear non-proliferation.

    Choi Sun-hee, an official of Pyongyang's foreign ministry, did not answer reporters' questions at the airport regarding the purpose of her visit.

    But speculation is running high that Choi will hold discussions with a number of former U.S. government officials who are also in Russia to attend the conference.

    Washington and Pyongyang used to exchange views through unofficial talks in times of high tension.
