Kremlin says North Korea's Kim could visit Russia next year
Moscow, Nov 7 (AP) The Kremlin says it hopes that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will visit Russia next year.
Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said Wednesday that "I hope the visit could be possible next year." The announcement contrasted with earlier Kremlin statements that Kim was expected to visit Russia this fall.
North Korea entered talks with the US and South Korea earlier this year, saying it's willing to negotiate away its advancing nuclear arsenal. Nuclear diplomacy later stalled because of suspicions over how sincere North Korea is about its disarmament pledge. (AP) MRJ
