Russia is looking at signing a new agreement with North Korea that calls for the prevention of dangerous military activities, Sputnik News cited Russian State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin as saying at a meeting with the Chairman of North Korea’s Supreme People's Assembly Choe Thae Bok.

“We consider it appropriate to significantly intensify our efforts to improve and to update the legal framework of our relations,” Naryshkin said, according to the report. “We consider it possible before the end of the year to sign two important documents: a treaty on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters and an agreement on preventing dangerous military activities.”

“In turn, I would like to assure you that the Russian leadership’s policy for good neighborly relations, development of friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation between our two countries remains unchanged,” Naryshkin was quoted by the news agency as saying.
