In a one-sentence dispatch, the North’s Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported the arrival of Ri Su-yong, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party and former foreign minister, after his visit to Laos.

Earlier in the day, Ri left Beijing on an Air Koryo flight to Pyongyang.

Ri arrived in Beijing on Sunday for a layover after visiting Laos, where he held talks with the Southeast Asian nation’s senior officials on ways to boost their bilateral relations.

It was not immediately clear if he had contact with Chinese officials during his stopover in Beijing.
