Kim Jong Un travels across the Russian border to meet Putin.

Kim Jong Un, the supreme leader of North Korea, arrived in Russia by train, where he will meet President Vladimir Putin.

According to North Korea’s official media, Mr. Kim arrived at his personal train on Sunday and departed Pyongyang for Russia.

Since Mr. Kim’s train is supposedly traveling north, away from the city of Vladivostok, it is unknown where the leaders will meet.

According to a US official, they were anticipated to talk about a weapons sale as Russia deals with a Ukrainian counteroffensive.

The “fully fledged visit,” according to the Kremlin, will cover “bilateral relations, the situation in the region, and the international arena.”

Even though the Kremlin announcement claimed it would happen in the “coming days,” the meeting might happen as soon as Tuesday local time.

When the train arrived at the Khasan border station on Tuesday morning, Mr. Kim got off to meet with Russian officials.

A brass band is playing as Putin exits the train and steps onto a red carpet to be met by a Russian delegation.

Alexander Kozlov, Russia’s minister of natural resources, was another person he met. They discussed the prospective launch of cooperative tourist and agricultural projects this year, according to Oleg Kozhemyako, a regional governor who made a video of the meeting public.

At least 20 large, hefty bulletproof carriages are said to be on Mr. Kim’s train. The train can only go at a speed of about 37 mph (59 km/h) because of the additional weight.

After nuclear disarmament negotiations with the then-US president, Donald Trump, fell out, the North Korean leader’s last travel outside of the country was to Vladivostok in 2019 for a summit with Mr. Putin.

The Vostochny Cosmodrome in far-eastern Russia, close to the Chinese border, has been mentioned as a potential location for the two leaders to meet.

One of Vladimir Putin’s favorite initiatives, it is the first commercial space center in the nation.
