North Korea to hold briefing for UN press corps

 

North Korea's U.N ambassador will hold a rare briefing for members of the U.N. press corps this week, a spokesman for the United Nations said on Monday.

The briefing by North Korean U.N. Ambassador Sin Son-ho will take place at U.N. headquarters in New York at 11:00 a.m. (1500 GMT) on Tuesday and cover "the current situation on the Korean peninsula," spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters.

It will come a day after South and North Korean delegations separately brief the U.N. Security Council about the deadly sinking of a South Korean naval ship in March that has raised tension on the Korean peninsula.

The South has accused the North of torpedoing the ship, an an allegation the North has denied.
