NK diplomats to meet governor Bill

WASHINGTON: New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson will meet Wednesday with two North Korean diplomats, his office said, amid signs of a thaw following a visit to Pyongyang by former US president Bill Clinton.

"The governor will meet tomorrow in Santa Fe with a delegation from the North Korean mission to the United Nations," Richardson spokeswoman Alarie Ray-Garcia told AFP.

He said Kim Myong-Gil, a minister at the North Korean mission at the United Nations, had requested the meeting. The senior North Korean diplomat was to attend the talks with a deputy.
