MOSCOW, March 7. /TASS/. Planning for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s visit to Russia will resume after a pause due to the second Trump-Kim summit held in Hanoi on February 27-28, a Russian diplomat who specializes in the Korean affairs, told TASS on Thursday.

“My impression is that all that [preparations for the Russian-North Korean summit] will restart after Hanoi,” he presumed.

According to the diplomat, Moscow is waiting for the agreement on Kim Jong-un’s visit reached earlier to be implemented. He did not rule out that, taking into account the experience of the Hanoi summit, the North Korean leader would prefer to travel to Russia by train, noting that the potential overland trip would require more fine-tuning.

That said, Kim Jong-un has never been to Russia. In contrast, his father Kim Jong-Il had visited the country three times – in 2001, 2002 and 2011 – travelling across Russia on his personal armored train.
