ST PETERSBURG (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that Russia would try to help U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un resume talks in an effort to find a breakthrough in their row over Pyongyang’s nuclear program.
Putin was speaking at an economic forum in St Petersburg.
Putin held his first face-to-face talks with Kim Jong Un in April after which he said U.S. security guarantees would probably not be enough to persuade Pyongyang to shut its nuclear program.
