Kim Jong-un to visit Russia in late April for first-ever meeting with Putin

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly accepted an invitation from Vladimir Putin to visit Russia. According to the Kremlin’s official website, Kim and Putin will meet in late April. It’s still unclear where the two leaders will meet, though the North Korean media has suggested it could happen in Vladivostok, near Russia’s border with China and North Korea.

This would be Vladimir Putin’s first meeting with Kim Jong-un, who has led North Korea since 2011.
