  • North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who held his first summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un yesterday, has stressed the need to provide North Korea with global security guarantees if it is expected to denuclearise.

Kim's remarks were seen as keeping pressure on the United States to be more flexible in accepting Pyongyang's demands to ease sanctions, compared to the U.S. stance during his unsuccessful second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Hanoi in February.

After Thursday's summit in the Pacific port city of Vladivostok, about 120 kilometres from the North Korean border, Putin stressed that Moscow and Washington both want North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons.

The two leaders had an in-depth discussion on ways for their countries to promote strategic communication and tactical collaboration in the course of ensuring peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the region, KCNA said.

Mr Putin said he is "not sure these talks need to be resumed right now".

"Peace and security on the Korean peninsula will entirely depend on the U.S. future attitude, and the DPRK will gird itself for every possible situation", KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

Kim suggested the end of the year as a deadline for the U.S.to come up with a new proposal acceptable to Pyongyang.

Putin and Kim met on Thursday for the first time at the Far Eastern Federal University on Russky Island in Vladivostok.

The statement also accused them of "cooperating with hostile parties in a way that damaged the high interests of the homeland". He was charged with disobeying the Saudi monarch, attacking security forces and other offenses, according to Reprieve .

But he insisted the North needed "guarantees of its security, the preservation of its sovereignty".

Russian media had reported that he was due to visit Vladivostok's aquarium and see a ballet, but on Friday said his programme had been significantly reduced and that Kim would be departing earlier than planned.

Putin flew on to another summit in Beijing the same day, while Kim stayed in Vladivostok and had been due to take part in a series of cultural events. The Russian leader also said Kim would be willing to disarm, providing there were security guarantees.

The talks with Trump ended without any results.

Trump said North Korea's demand that the United States lift economic sanctions in their entirety forced his team to walk away from reaching an agreement.

Such guarantees would have to be worldwide, legally binding, and vouch for North Korea's sovereignty, Putin said.

Kim then laid flowers, took off his hat and bowed as a Russian military band played music, including North Korea's national anthem.

Putin said they discussed the issue and would find a solution taking into account "humanitarian" factors, though he didn't say what that would be.
