Kim Prepares for Summit With Putin in Russia


SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will soon visit Russia to meet President Vladimir Putin, according to Pyongyang state media, marking the isolated Asian regime’s first public acknowledgment of a planned summit between the two countries’ top figures.

The brief state media report, published early Tuesday, didn’t specify where or when Messrs. Kim and Putin would meet, confirming only that the two “will have talks during the visit.”
