Today 05:10 GMT

Russian President Vladimir Putin said after his summit with Kim Jong Un Thursday that the North Korean leader is ready to proceed toward denuclearization — but needs solid security guarantees to do so.

Vladimir Putin arrives in Vladivostok for summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
