Kim Jong Un visits Russia to meet Putin



North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has crossed the border into Russia where he is due to meet President Vladimir Putin.

Kim is still a few hours away from his destination of Vladivostok – he’s travelled overnight on his bulletproof train.

The US believes Russia wants North Korea to sell it weapons for the war in Ukraine.

The Kremlin has confirmed a meeting between the two leaders “in coming days” about regional and global issues.

Analysts believe this meet-up arose after Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu’s visited Pyongyang in July where he took a tour of the North’s weapons.

This is Kim’s first trip abroad in four years. 

The two leaders last met in 2019, also in the border city.
