Former N. Korean diplomat to Italy, Jo Song-gil, settles in S. Korea after going missing in 2018 Updated: 2020-10-07 07:28:16 KST


A former senior North Korean diplomat who went missing from the North's embassy in Italy in 2018 has settled in South Korea.
South Korean lawmaker Ha Tae-keung, of the main opposition People Power Party, who also sits on the National Assembly's intelligence committee, said Jo Song-gil came to South Korea last year under the protection of the government.
Citing multiple sources, Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency also reported that Jo and his wife are living here.
Early last year, the Italian foreign ministry confirmed that Jo’s daughter was repatriated to the North at her request after her parents disappeared.
