The history of Russian diplomacy covers 200 years and the Day of Diplomats was set in 2002, Russian ambassador Alexander Matsegora said. He added that 12 000 Russian diplomats with a high sense of patriotism and responsibility for their work are now active in 140 countries.

He told his country would work hard to boost Russo-DPRK relations in the future, too.
