Lee Hee-ho plans her next visit to Pyongyang
A delegation from Lee’s nonprofit organization, the Kim Dae-jung Peace Center, met with North Korean officials in Kaesong on Monday as a follow-up to on-going talks on Lee’s visit to Pyongyang.
The two sides agreed that the 92-year-old former first lady will make a visit to North Korea from Aug. 5 to 8 via plane, rather than car as initially proposed.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recommended that Lee travels by plane, “taking into consideration her age and health,” said former Culture Minister Kim Sung-jae, head of the Kim Dae-jung Peace Center.
However, he did not specify if Lee would be able to meet with the North Korean leader during the visit in August.
