Russian President Vladimir Putin has invited North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to Moscow as he praised the results of his summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.
Putin told North Korea's visiting ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam on Thursday the historic summit between North Korea and the U.S. was without a doubt the first step towards a full-blown settlement.
The Russian president said he would be happy to welcome leader Kim, suggesting they meet during an economic forum in the far eastern port city of Vladivostok this September.
The North Korean leader has never visited Russia, unlike his father, Kim Jong-Il, who traveled to the country in 2011.■
