ABSTRACT
The article reports that North Korea under its leader Kim Jong-Il is trying to improve relations with Russia as the isolated communist country braces for United Nations (UN)-mandated sanctions. Kim has sent a letter to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to mark Korea's liberation from Japan's 1910-45 colonial rule and the end of World War I. Earlier, Russia and China both had supported a UN resolution condemning North Korea's second nuclear test.
