A vice-ministerial level official of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) was in Taiwan from October 11 to 14, according to Taiwan's media.

Cho Seung Kyu, deputy tourism chief of the DPRK, entered Taiwan on a tourism visa on October 11 and left on October 14. He was there to hold discussions with Taiwanese travel agencies and discuss direct charter flights.

Taiwan authorities, unaware of the visit, learned about the presence of Choi from media coverage, it was reported Wednesday.

He had reportedly applied for his Taiwan visa at the DPRK’s representative office in Singapore.

Cho speaks fluent Chinese and visited Taiwan at least ten times, each time traveling on a tourism visa, reports said.
