North Korean leader Kim may visit Russia soon

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is currently on his way back to home after failed meeting with President Donald Trump in Vietnam and amid such timing Russian press secretary announced Kim’s visit to Russia is on card.

Dmitry Peskov said date and venue of Kim’s visit to Russia will be determined through diplomatic channels.

Meanwhile, Russian media reported Monday members of parliamentary group dealing with relations of both the countries will visit North Korea on April 12.

After Kim and Trump failed to wrap their meeting with a deal to denuclearize Korean Peninsula, South Korea has proposed semi-official three-way talks.

Addressing at the National Security Council meeting the South Korean President Moon Jae-in said it is their utmost priority to prevent derailing of nuclear negotiations between Kim and Trump.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said the talks would help in settling differences between the two nations with sanctions relief in exchange of nuclear disarmament.

Kang added, “We should look into what and how the US and North Korea see the current situation and we will come up with practical mediation measures.”

US claims the meeting between Kim and Trump in Hanoi failed due to excessive demands for sanctions relief by North Korea in exchange of nuclear disarmament.

However, North Korea denied the allegations.
