Central News Agency said.

Paek graduated from Kim Il-sung University in Pyongyang, and served as
Foreign Minister since 1998, South Korea's Yonhap News said today, without
saying where it obtained the information.

the 1990s, Yonhap said.

July last year to attend a forum of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations,
