North Korea's Kim Jong-il in Rare Russia Visit

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-14600366

North Korea's reclusive leader, Kim Jong-il, has begun his first trip to Russia since 2002.

His train arrived in the border town of Khasan in the Russian Far East, where he is to hold talks with President Dmitry Medvedev in the coming days.

They are likely to discuss the possible resumption of international talks over North Korea's nuclear programme.

North Korea is in talks with Russian gas monopoly Gazprom about a pipeline through its territory to South Korea.

A delegation from the company visited North Korea last month.

The BBC's Lucy Williamson in Seoul says the pipeline would have a far-reaching political and economic impact, and potentially allow North Korea to control a key energy supply to the South.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency says the North Korean leader is expected to visit a dam north of Vladivostock, before holding summit talks with President Medvedev in Siberia on Tuesday.

The agency quotes an unnamed official as saying Mr Kim may also meet Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

The leader's comes amid severe economic hardship and food shortages in North Korea.

On Friday, Moscow announced it was providing 50,000 tons of wheat to Pyongyang.

My brother has a Korean student in one of his classes and the kid brought in some homemade kimchi the other day.
My brother said it was really good.

I have a Korean friend who wants to take a few of us from work to a Korean restaurant. Never had kimchi, but he told me about it. Really should get that arranged.

tell your korean friends to take you to Korean BBQ restaurants if they have one in your area, my favourite meal out. they have special tables with grills in them and they have various different ways that they prepare the meat in the kitchen and you grill it on yer table and eat it straight off the grill

I think it's fair to say the North's diet is vastly different from the South's.
