PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj is visiting North Korea and may become the first foreign head of state to meet the country's leader Kim Jong Un since he took over.
The Mongolian president's website says Elbegdorj will discuss bilateral and regional affairs in North Korea.
He announced his trip shortly before departing for Pyongyang on Monday.
The Associated Press Television filmed the North Korean parliament chief Kim Yong Nam greeting Elbegdorj and his wife upon their arrival at Pyongyang airport.
Foreign media have speculated that the Mongolian president may be the first foreign head of state to meet Kim Jong Un since he took over following the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in December 2011.
