In return, he was reportedly assured that North Korea would keep Indian interests in mind - North Korea and Pakistan have exchanged technologies and equipment in the past.

On Wednesday, the North said it was indefinitely suspending high-level inter-Korean talks that were set to be held the same day, citing the recently launched Max Thunder joint military exercise of South Korean and the United States. However, the timing of Mr. Singh's visit coincided with fresh tensions between Pyongyang and Washington over the nature of the talks between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un scheduled in Singapore for June 12.

"The North Korean side emphasised that as a friendly country, it will never allow any action that would create concerns for India's security", the statement said.

India had said then that its trade with North Korea was in any case "minimal". But, the Indian government has instituted major restrictions on any trade with North Korea other than essentials like food and medicines.

Singh reiterated India's support to the joint peace initiative of North Korea and South Korea and encouraged both sides to seeking peace and prosperity in the Korean Peninsula.
