South Korea's FM due in Moscow for talks
South Korea's Foreign Minister is due in Moscow on Monday for a two-day visit. Han Seung Soo will meet his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and the head of Russia's Security Council, Igor Ivanov.

They'll focus on six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear ambitions ahead of a new round of negotiations,  in which the two Koreas , Russia, China, Japan, and the United States are taking part.

Pyongyang has already promised to disable one of its nuclear reactors and to re-admit nuclear inspectors in exchange for fuel aid.

Business ties between Moscow and Seoul will also be discussed. Bilateral trade is currently at record levels.
