Kim Jong Un, Putin Set for Talks in Russia Thursday
Wednesday, 24 April 2019 10:45 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is due to travel this week to the far-eastern Russian city of Vladivostok for a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin on Tuesday confirmed the two leaders are meeting on Thursday.

Kim is expected to push Putin for sanctions relief amid stalled nuclear talks with the United States. Over the past year, Kim Jong Un has held high-profile summits with U.S. President Donald Trump as well as the leaders of Vietnam. China, and South Korea.

Kim wants relief from painful U.N. sanctions that remain in place after nuclear talks with the United States broke down. Putin may not provide much help. With his own economy hurting, North Korea is not seen as a top priority.

But the summit could help reduce North Korea's reliance on China, its biggest trading partner.
