Putin and Kim Jong-un holds press conference after meeting for very first time

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin met reporters in the aftermath of his first-ever summit with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.

The talks took place in the Pacific coast city of Vladivostok on Thursday.

Kim’s first ever state visit to Russia has been shrouded in secrecy and was not confirmed until the very last moment. It was revealed during the summit – by Kim himself – that one of the reasons for him to travel to Russia was to discuss the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

Ties between Moscow and Pyongyang were also said to be on the agenda.
