Russia sends fuel to DPRK

According to Yonhap:

Russia will deliver another 100,000 tons of fuel oil to North Korea by October as a reward for the country’s shutdown of its nuclear power facilities, Itar-Tass news agency reported Wednesday, quoting a top Russian envoy to the six-party nuclear talks.

North Korea has been promised energy aid equivalent to a million tons of heavy fuel oil as part of economic and political rewards for declaring all its nuclear programs and disabling its main nuclear plants under a six-party deal on ending the North’s nuclear activities.

“We’ve fulfilled our promises — delivered 100,000 tons of fuel oil in two batches by the middle of the year,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Borodavkin was quoted as telling journalists in Beijing Wednesday. “We are preparing to fulfil our obligations further and send another 100,000 tons by October,” he said.
