North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could visit Russia as early as next week, ONA reports citing Yonhap News Agency.

"Chances are fairly high that a summit between Russia and North Korea could take place around that time," the news agency said. According to Yonhap, the top-level meeting is likely to be held in Vladivostok.

The news agency noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin would take part in the One Belt, One Road forum in China on April 26-27. According to one of its sources, Putin’s meeting with Kim could be held a day or two before or immediately after that event.
