North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has left to Russia for first talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding Korean peninsula’s nuclear problem. Talking to state media, Putin’s foreign-policy aide, Yuri Ushakov, said the situation on the Korean peninsula had stabilised. Both leaders will meet near the Pacific coast city of Vladivostok.
Mr Putin’s foreign-policy aide, Yuri Ushakov, said the situation on the Korean peninsula had “stabilised somewhat” in recent months. “Russia intends to help in any way possible to cement that positive trend,” he told reporters on Tuesday (April 23).
Meanwhile, analysts say Mr Kim is seeking support after talks with US President Donald Trump collapsed. Mr Trump and Mr Kim met in Hanoi earlier this year to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, but the summit – their second – ended without agreement.
