Earlier Putin had conveyed to the official, Kim Yong Nam, an invitation for the North Korean leader to visit Russia. Kim Young Nam heads the presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly in North Korea.

Putin’s invitation to Kim Jong Un comes days after the reclusive North Korean leader held landmark talks in Singapore with U.S. President Donald Trump.
