Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have said they had positive discussions at their first ever summit , aimed at resolving a standoff over Pyongyang's Vladimir Putin is the sixth world leader to meet Kim Jong-un. Russia hopes to show it is a global diplomatic player.


In February, Kim's second summit with President Donald Trump in Hanoi ended without any agreement because of disputes over U.S.-led sanctions. There have since been no publicly known high-level contacts between the U.S. and North Korea, although both sides say they are still open to a third summit.

Kim wants the U.S. to ease the sanctions to reciprocate for some partial disarmament steps he took last year. But the U.S. maintains the sanctions will stay in place until North Korea makes more significant denuclearization moves.

Some experts say Kim could try to bolster his country's ties with Russia and China. Others say it's not clear how big of a role Russia can play in efforts to restart the nuclear negotiations. Still, the summit could allow Putin to try to increase his influence in regional politics and the standoff over North Korea's nuclear program.
