Ukraine terminates agreement with N. Korea to set up intergovernmental commission

MOSCOW. Jan 9 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian government has terminated an agreement between the governments of Ukraine and North Korea on the establishment of an intergovernmental commission on trade, economic, scientific and technological cooperation.

The relevant decision was made at a government meeting on December 30, Ukrainian media reported with reference to a social media post of governmental representative in the Verkhovna Rada Taras Melnichuk.

The agreement, which was signed in Kiev on June 8, 1994, was terminated due to the support of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) government to Russia and the severance of diplomatic relations with the DPRK, it said.
