North Korea's foreign minister is in Moscow for a three-day stay.
On Tuesday, Ri Yong-ho meets his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov to discuss a range of bilateral and international topics, focusing mainly on the Korean Peninsula. Moscow expressed support for Pyongyang's efforts to improve relations with South Korea and talk directly with the U.S.
Ri's trip follows a visit to Azerbaijan last week for a multilateral summit and to Beijing for talks with China's top diplomat Wang Yi.
North Korea is trying to win international support ahead of its back-to-back summits with Seoul and Washington.
