VIENTIANE, July 24 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's foreign minister arrived in Laos on Sunday to attend a regional security forum likely to be dominated by Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Ri Yong-ho and a delegation of North Korean officials arrived at Wattay International Airport at around 2:45 p.m., a main gateway to the Laotian capital of Vientiane where regional meetings led by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) kicked off earlier in the day.

He didn't make any comments to a group of reporters waiting for his arrival. But when asked if he has any plans to meet with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on the sidelines, he nodded.
