Earlier, the leader of the North Korea met with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok. They have met for the first time to discuss the development of further bilateral agreements, as Reuters reported.
“The two men were holding a day of talks on an island off the Russian Pacific city of Vladivostok two months after Kim’s summit with U.S. President Donald Trump ended in disagreement, cooling hopes of a breakthrough in the decades-old nuclear row,” the news agency reads.
Putin said he hoped for a successful outcome of the meeting and discussion bilateral relationships, thanks to which it will be clear how Russia might manage the situation in North Korea.
