Kim expected to meet ‘soon’ with leaders of China, Russia: Seoul
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Monday he believed North Korea’s Kim Jong Un would soon meet with the leaders of China and Russia as part of an ongoing diplomatic effort to reduce tensions on the Korean peninsula.
It comes a day after the North Korean leader agreed to hold a second summit with US President Donald Trump “as early as possible”, following a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang.
“Separately from the second US-North Korea summit, Chairman Kim Jong Un’s visit to Russia and President Xi Jinping’s visit to North Korea are expected to take place soon,” Moon told a cabinet meeting.
The possibility of a summit between Kim and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is also “open”, Moon said, adding: “A new order is being created on the Korean peninsula.”
