President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un take a walk after their first meeting at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel, in Hanoi in February.

The summit between Kim and Putin has been widely expected since the Russian government confirmed on April 3 that it has formally invited the North Korean leader to visit the country.

Moon met Kim three times previous year and also brokered nuclear talks between Washington and Pyongyang following tensions created by North's nuclear and missile tests and the exchange of war threats between Kim and President Donald Trump. Trump hailed the decision, saying a third summit with Kim "would be good". "There is no discussion with the North yet, but we need to consider all possible circumstances including a possible visit by Trump to Korea in May or June".

According to the Yonhap news agency, citing sources familiar with the matter, a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could take place in the Russia's Far East on 24 April. During that speech, he said that North Korea needed to increase its self-reliance and "deal a telling blow to hostile forces" seeking to apply sanctions pressure.

On Thursday, Trump said sanctions imposed against North Korea will remain in place until Pyongyang fully dismantles its nuclear program.

President Donald Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House last week.

Kim blamed the collapse of the second summit with Trump on what he described as Washington's unilateral demands.

Also, it appears that South Korean President Moon Jae-in has just departed Washington, having failed in his attempt to convince U.S. President Donald Trump to compromise on key sanctions that would have allowed Moon to reengage with Pyong-yang.

Moon's message was clearly a response to Kim's speech to newly-elected members of the North's rubber stamp legislature on Friday.

Choe also "called for making a dynamic struggle for the prosperity of Juche Korea and accomplishment of the cause of socialism, single-heartedly rallied around Kim Jong Un", KCNA said. He said the North's economy would preserve through heavy US -led sanctions imposed over its nuclear weapons program and that he "wouldn't "obsess over summitry with the United States out of thirst for sanctions relief". Moon's opening remarks made no mention of a special envoy. At the time, National Intelligence Service Chief Suh Hoon also visited the North.
