North Korea leader Kim to meet with Putin in Russian Federation

North Korea leader Kim to meet with Putin in Russian Federation

Bolton is the second, top-ranking USA politician to be criticised by Pyongyang in recent days, after it labelled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as "reckless" Thursday, demanding his removal from talks over the North's banned nuclear programme.

The North's state-run Korean Central News Agency released a terse, two-sentence statement saying Kim "will soon pay a visit to the Russian Federation", and that he and Putin "will have talks".

The leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un will visit Russia for a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the DPRK's state media confirmed.

"The president is fully prepared to have a third summit if he can get a real deal", Bolton said in the interview.

In last year's "Diplomatic Bluebook", published when tensions on the Korean peninsula were soaring, Japan said it was coordinating efforts with its allies to "maximise pressure on North Korea by all available means". "They will have talks during this visit". "All things considered, his word has no charm in it and he looks dim-sighted to me".

The main item on the agenda would be worldwide efforts to end the standoff over North Korea's nuclear programme, Ushakov told reporters.

The remarks were relatively mild for a figure whom the North has in the past described as "human scum" and a "bloodsucker", and appeared to highlight Pyongyang's frustration with deadlocked nuclear negotiations.

As the standoff continued, the North last week announced that it had tested what it called a new type of "tactical guided weapon".

After the talks stalled in February with Trump, Kim wants to prove he is still sought after with other foreign leaders.

NK News, a group that follows North Korea, showed photos on its website on Monday of preparations at Vladivostok's Far Eastern Federal University, which is likely to host part of the summit.
