The top North Korean diplomat in Italy and his wife went into hiding in November in a possible defection, a South Korean member of Parliament said Thursday. The South Korean National Intelligence Service briefed Parliament on the possible defection of North Korean acting Ambassador to Italy Jo Song Gil on Thursday. Kim Min-ki, one of the lawmakers briefed, said the spy agency reported Jo and his wife vacated their official residence in early November before he wrapped up his service late that month.
