NORTH KOREA RUSSIA RELATIONS – North Korea’s state TV shows leader Kim returning home


North Korea’s state-run television KRT on Sunday (April 28) aired a video footage of leader Kim Jong Un returning home by private train after visiting Russia.

In the video, Kim was greeted by high-ranking officials along with honour guards and residents upon his arrival to a train station in North Korea on Saturday (April 27). The state media did not specify which train station it was.

During his first Russia visit, Kim told Russian President Vladimir Putin that peace and security on the Korean peninsula depended on the United States, warning that a state of hostility could easily return, KRT said.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who ended a second summit with Kim in February without a deal for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons, seemed unperturbed, saying a lot of progress was being made towards an agreement and welcomed Putin’s support.
