As a result of the incognito visit that Comrade Kim Il Sung made to Moscow at the end of last year, a high-level Korean delegation headed by Kim Il, [who is] a member of the Presidium of the Political Committee, a secretary of the Central Committee, and the first deputy of the premier, visited the Soviet Union from 13 February to 3 March. Other members of the delegation were Ri Jong-ok [Ri Jong Ok], [who is] a Political Committee member, a deputy premier, and the chairman of the Academy of Sciences; Deputy Minister of Defense O Jin-u [O Chin-u], a deputy member of the Political Committee; O Donguk, a Central Committee member and the chairman of the Commission of Technical Development; and others.
The delegation was received by L. Brezhnev and A. Kosygin, while the head of the Soviet delegation was First Deputy Premier Mazurov.[…]
The Soviet side rejected the Korean request for the delivery of a nuclear power plant [emphasis in the original] (the experimental nuclear reactor that had been established with Soviet assistance was opened approximately one and a half years ago, and since then the Soviet comrades hardly have any data about its operation).
