North Korean Diplomat in Rome Disappears
Apparent defection of Jo Song Gil, interim ambassador until late last year, presents embarrassment for Pyongyang
SEOUL—A North Korean diplomat in Rome has gone into hiding along with his wife, South Korean lawmakers said, citing Seoul’s intelligence agency, a development that presents embarrassment for Pyongyang as it negotiates nuclear disarmament with the U.S. It isn’t clear whether Jo Song Gil, North Korea’s interim ambassador to Italy until late last year, is seeking to flee to another country. But Kim Min-ki— a lawmaker on the South Korean legislature’s intelligence committee, which was briefed by Seoul intelligence officials on Thursday—told reporters that Italian authorities were holding the couple. “He escaped the diplomatic compound in early November and...went into hiding,” Mr. Kim said.
