North Korean Spy Chief Visits Seoul

UPDATE: One Free Korea thinks they may be discussing what to do with their clandestine spy ring that was uncovered last year.

________________________________

North Korea’s chief of intelligence has stopped by Seoul to give orders to his top spies:

There were no agreements. No tangible results. So why did the head of the North’s spy agency, Kim Yang-gon, pay a visit? It’s still a mystery. Still, the diplomatic frenzy by senior officials here suggests that Seoul sees Kim’s visit here as a signal to Washington that North Korea is sincere about denuclearizing and normalizing ties. (…)

Nevertheless, the contents of Kim Yang-gon’s meeting with President Roh Moo-hyun have not been made public. The spymaster also held closed-door meetings with Unification Minister Lee Jae-joung and Kim Man-bok, the head of the National Intelligence Service instead of visiting SK Telecom, as his agenda said he would. [Joong Ang Ilbo]

It is shocking that Chung Dong-young wasn’t invited. Any guesses on what they talked about? My guess is that they are discussing strategy to topple Lee Myung-bak since Chung Dong-young is still trailing big time in the polls.

    This is outrageous. This would be like Ayman Al-Zawahiri n stopping off at the Pentagon to have a "chat." Is there no shame to the Roh administration???

    [...] So why did Kim secretly go to Pyongyang before the South Korean election you may ask?  He says he went to Pyongyang to erect a monument near a tree Roh Moo-hyun planted when he visited North Korea and released the tape to the media to prove it.  I can’t believe this guy actually thinks people will buy that he traveled all the way to North Korea to erect a monument.  Keep in mind this guy secretly traveled to North Korea before the South Korean presidential election and shortly after it was reported the North Korean spy chief secretly visited the Blue House.  [...]
