Russia could supply energy to North Korea

On February 11, head of the Federal Network Company Andrey Rappoport and Presidential Envoy in the Far East Federal District Konstantin Pulikovsky will meet in Khabarovsk to discuss the possibility of supplying energy to North Korea, the information and analytical center of the Envoy's office reported.

The participants of the meeting will also discuss short-term and long-term development of the Far East energy industry, including integration in the Asian-Pacific region. Previously, Director General of the Economic Research Institute for Northeast Asia Susumu Yoshida stated at an international forum in Khabarovsk that Russian electrical energy supplies to North Korea were promising. In his opinion, while developing economically, North Korea will inevitably face a deficit of energy resources, which should be compensated by imports from outside, that is from Russian power plants.
