Kim Jong Un welcomed at Russia's border

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Korean leader Kim Jong Un crossed the border into Russia on Wednesday (April 24) by train, Russian media reported, for his first trip there aimed at galvanizing support from President Vladimir Putin while nuclear talks with Washington are in a limbo.

Kim is expected to project himself as a serious world player with his first meeting with the Russian leader and at the same time seek assistance from a key ally to ease economic pressure brought on by U.S. and international sanctions.

The young leader will meet with Putin in the Russian Pacific port of Vladivostok on Thursday (April 25) with the nuclear stalemate with the United States topping the agenda, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said.

Arriving in an armored train at the Russian border station of Khasan, Kim was greeted with flowers and traditional gifts of bread and salt.

He then toured the Russian-Korean Friendship House located at the station, built ahead of a 1986 visit by his late grandfather and state-founder and leader Kim Il Sung who died in 1994.

Kim is seeking to rally support from Moscow after his second meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in Vietnam in February broke down over differences about demands for Pyongyang to denuclearise and for Washington to drop sanctions.
