Vladimir Putin to meet Kim Jong-un this week for first time

Today 06:04 GMT

Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin are expected to hold talks on an island in the far east of Russia this week in the first meeting between the two leaders.

He will meet Putin on Thursday and then remain one more day to see the city and possibly locations visited by his father, Kim Jong-il, in 2002. Putin, perhaps wary of irritating North Korea’s main ally, China, will leave on Friday for Beijing to attend the April summit of the Belt and Road initiative.
