North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has extended an invitation on Thursday to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to pay a visit to Pyongyang at “a convenient time” and the offer was “readily accepted” by Kim.

According to ANI news reports, the visit invitation comes after Kim and Putin held talks in the Russian port city of Vladivostok. The two leaders have held their first-ever summit on Thursday.

In a report, North Korean state media KCNA stated: “The dignified supreme leader’s comrade once again expressed his deep appreciation for the friendship and warm hospitality of friends of friendly Russia. He promised a new reunion with Mr Putin in North Korea.”

Kim and Putin met to attend their maiden summit, amid a deadlock between North Korea and the United States over complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

During the meeting, Putin said, “Russian supports the efforts of the leadership of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for the realization of seasonal dialogue and improvement of North-South relations.”

KCNA reported Putin has said Russian is willing to further cooperate with Moscow in resolving escalated tensions in the Korean Peninsula and bolstering security throughout the Northeast Asian region. Putin also said under the active participation of the international community, including all interested nations, he was thoroughly convinced to surely achieve the goal of ensuring peace and further stability, as well as, prosperity.

Putin and Kim have held a meaningful dialogue over the peace and security issues in the Korean peninsula and the region, and the international issues were of common concern, KNCNA reported quoting Kim.

After holding a three-hour long meeting, the Russian president called Kim a “very open person”, stating they had open and detailed talks of sanctions, denuclearization and the US, as reported by Sputnik news agency.
