Antigo chefe espião norte-coreano vai a Washington para conversações
May 30, 2018 -- O antigo chefe espião da Coreia do Norte é o mais importante funcionário norte-coreano a visitar os EUA em quase 20 anos
General Kim, 72, is a controversial figure in neighbouring South Korea, and previously served as a negotiator in inter-Korean talks.
He is believed to have masterminded numerous attacks on South Korea, including the sinking of the Cheonan military vessel in 2010, which killed 46 sailors.
Kim Yong Chol has been closely involved with talks with South Korea as well and his visit to the United States would further indicate preparations for the historic summit are moving ahead.
