Associated Press delegation visits DPRK


09:26, August 24, 2011

PYONGYANG, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- A delegation from influential news provider The Associated Press (AP) arrived at Pyongyang on Tuesday, the official KCNA news agency reported.

The KCNA did not disclose the purpose of the trip or the itinerary of the delegation, which was led by John Daniszewski, the AP's senior managing editor for international news and photography.

The KCNA has recently signed agreements with the New York-based AP on setting up a news bureau in Pyongyang and allowing the U.S. media organization to use video from the KCNA's archives.

In March, AP President Thomas Curley paid a three-day visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, expressing hope to strengthen press cooperation with the Northeastern Asian country.
